Reclaiming Your Life from Atrial Fibrillation
Many afib patients have to give up activities they love because of their afib. However, most patients we talked with who had minimally invasive afib surgery returned to their normal activities soon after surgery.
They now have their physical and mental vitality restored and feel much younger. Many have as much energy as they did years ago. Now they can work vigorously outdoors, be active with sports and hobbies, and even play ball with the grandkids. Most work out regularly and are in better shape than before.
Most importantly, the fear is gone. Some are back to flying and traveling by themselves again. In addition, removing the left atrial appendage to eliminate the risk of blood clots and stroke from afib provides peace of mind to resume activities that were risky with atrial fibrillation.
Those who have had minimally invasive afib surgery now say, “I have my life back.”
