    I think a pacemaker may be my only option - four ablations means that I possibly only have scar tissue around the pulmonary and nothing left to safely burn.

    Nothing to fear from a pacemaker.

    40min opp, while still awake.

    Back to running after 12 weeks.

    All the best Chris.

    Just to clarify: in general, pacemakers - which are for hearts that go too slow - do not "treat" AF, but occasionally they do help when
    1/ the AF is, in a complicated way, the result of the heart going too slow, and/or
    2/ the drugs needed to keep the heart out of AF result in it going too slow.

    Best wishes to all!
