Some of you have noted that I've mentioned in whiny times, that my hubby has been suffering from bad bouts of atrial fibrilation withe his heart.
This started in March, he's been in the ER twice, ICU, twice, had his heart shocked back into time twice. The first time they shocked him 5 times to get him back into time.
So, fast forward, he's had every test known to the medical profession, tried all the drugs and still can't get this under control.
So, yesterday, we made the 200 mile treck to see a Dr. who specializes in surgery to correct his arythmia. It was a stressful week waiting to go, all the unkowns.
He is a good candidate for the surgery, and as it stands now, he's blown through all the medications and still keeps trying to go into A-fib, but the meds are keeping him from it, but, the dose can't be upped and there are no other choices, but live with it, which sucks or do the surgery. So, the Heart Center of the Rockies will be calling next week, to give us the schedule for the surgery, some time in January.
The surgery is 70% affective the first time, of those, a tweak, surgery is 95 % affective and they get off all meds and are fine. If that does not work, a pace maker is the next step. It's not a very risky surgery, but,,,,,,,,,,,,,
We are scared out of our minds, and stressed to death.
No particular point, just needed to dump some anxiety and stress.
