      I didn’t have AFib but SVT, however I think the treatment is comparable. My dad had AFib and we had similar surgeries. I can’t recommend it enough! I haven’t had any pain since! I know it’s slightly different situations but I always advocate for ablations!

      There’s a lot of good information on the American Heart Associations website. AFib is typically a life long issue. There is surgery that your Cardiologist can tell you more about, called an Ablation and if that would be a good option for you. Most Cardiologists will also tell you that surgery doesn’t always work well. Many people can manage quite well on medication.
