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?
