    AV node ablated, twin lead pacemaker now in control, but alas not in sinus rhythm. A very slight chance that one more cardioversion may just get me back to 'normal', however, it's great to able to work and play - a much better place than I was in for the bulk of 2017.

    'control/alt/delete' done last week, a bit battered and bruised, but I have sinus rhythm at last. Fingers crossed that I can maintain it. Hope all my fellow AF runners are are doing well!

    got my fingers crossed for you too Chris - yours seems to have been a long journey to improvement

    just realised it is 2 years and a day since my ablation
    I have had no issues since, although I'm sure my overall stroke-volume is down a bit which means I would have to push myself harder than I used to do to achieve same fitness (which I am reluctant to do for various reasons including laziness!)
    as a result my training/racing has become a bit patchier/poorer, but I'm still getting out there and enjoying it

    Daz, so glad its working well - enjoyment is the thing! Hope your AW went well despite the heat. I've had two really good weeks in sinus rhythm, but alas then the wheels came off, so to speak, and I'm back to square one....only more out of breath and energy than I was before. This cardioversion has been confirmed as my last chance(I knew the odds were small but I thought worth the risk), looks like I'll need chemical control to regain any control. But I've had another ECG done today and hope to see another specialist, just in case there is another route to try, before I get on the chemical wagon.

    All quiet on the AF front is good, I think, though for myself I'm in permanent AF, on ACE inhibitor, but happy that I can work, walk/shuffle, cycle. Now trying to find out if I can ' re-train' to get somewhere on achieving a little bit of sustained effort.

    Still all quiet on the AF front, I can get up hills slowly, make great use of 'Granny gear' on the bike, and now reasonably content with what I can do.
