Hi Tuedemann,

Thank you for writing in.
I am assuming that atrial fibrillation ablation was successful and you have sinus rhythm now.
The most common cause of leg swelling and other symptoms you described is because of some of medications prescribed for high BP. Therefore, I will urge you to write in more detail about your problem of blood pressure and present normal or abnormal rhythm of heart. Also tell us how much you weigh and what is your height? Have you consulted your Gynecologist for some symptoms and signs can be hormonal in this age.

With Best Wishes
