Thanks for response. I went through with the cardioversion (2006) and got back on normal rhythm but I am still afib and go in and out of rhythm, even though I am on rhythmol med. Should I consider doing the ablation to correct once and for all? What is success rate? Would I be able to get off rhythmol?

My Cardio Plus Test results came in today, I ordered them myself just to see how my general health is. The only values out of range were A/G ratio 2.8 (normal 1.1-2.5) with albumin 5.0 (3.5-5.5) and globulin 1.8 (1.5-4.5) and LDL 111 (0-99) with HDL 56 ( 39). Should these results be a reason for concern and additional tests?
