for AF -Blood thinners or surgery
The other day i received through my cardilogist's portal an email saying for the first time for me at least . Since the implant on Aug, 2019, The pacemaker had sent an alert. My pacemaker information is sent nightly,.
Last lexican stress test in 1/20/21 was stable and showed EF 60%-63%. Also I have PAF and SSS and intermitten CHB.
Per 3/9/2022 remote transmission have had 5VT episodes noted since last quartely tranmission 12/21/2021. Next quartely transmission is March 15.2022. This was signed at March 9,2022 at 2:49:54pm. Which i had recieved around 4:30pm. Just happened to be on computer.
That i had "max duration of 20bts at Vent rate of 188bpm noted this morning 3/9/22 at 6:50am." I recall i felt a little dizzy with burry vision just breifly and had wondered what that was. Often my vision is blurry. The other thing this past week my legs were often swollen. Noticed after driving 20 minutes were swollen. thought i should start wearing suuport stockings again.
Also noted 18 NSVT event recorded as SVT-AF, with Vent rate of 240bpm on 2/12/22 at 19:34. all other VT episodes were <13bt durations.
I had also a total of 740 AT/AF events for -8%AF burden noted over the last 3 months-max duration on 3//1/2022 for 3.2hours egms consistent w/PAF. Vent rates have been pace controlled during AT/Af per histogram data. Othewise been 62%AP/27%VP. Presenting egm showed normal AP/VP rhythm at -80bpm.
I have left for the Cardiologist reports of Lactose Free Medications and other types of surgeries similiar to Watchman . The AtriCip which also includes remaing on aspirin forever which does not appeal to me. The other LARIAT which is free from blood thinners. Hopefully my LAA is the right size and in the right position. I looked these up and the above are my opinons. Am looking forward to your opinions. Am seeing the cardiologist on March 21,2022 to talk about my options.
As of this moment have upped my blood thinner (Turmeric)supplement to 4 times a day. I know how many of you do not approve of this method.
Been sitting here wondering why don't they just remove that part since it is not needed. low and behold did see that very suggestion in.
called Surgical excision has no leaks.
