I'm going back into the hospital tomorrow to have another cardioversion. (My 3rd try at this) The first time to 3 shocks but my heart stayed in AF. I was put on Defedilide for 3 days and then had my 2nd cardioversion and my heart stayed for about 4 days. I was taken off the Defedilide and put on Amiodarone for 7 days for my next cardioversion tomorrow. First I'm not comfortable with the be side effects of this drug and would like to get off of it as soon as I can and would like to go on Sotalol if possible. I only have one kidney. I lost my left kidney to cancer in 2010.
