I've had permanent AFib for 25+ years. I recently checked with a cardiologist to see if an ablation could be effective in my case. He said that my heart was too enlarged for an ablation to have any chance of working. And..... If I did decide to have an ablation, it would probably take many ablation attempts, all with a low chance of success.
Prior to your ablation, did your Cardiologist mention that it may take more than one ablation, did he talk about the chances for success?
