I was wondering if you can have chronic afib after just being diagnosed and have no symptons. My mom was just diagnosed with a fib the other day. She has had 2 ekg withing 3 days and they both show afib. Does that mean she probably always has it? She sees a cardiologist in a couple months. She feels no symptoms but I can feel her pulse skipping.She has some sob with exertion but thats been like that for years, plus shes overweight and not active. Her regular Dr just put her on warfarin and metoporol. I'm hoping that helps. If shes on both those meds, is it likely to stay the same or get better? Any advice would help. We are new to this and feel like its a death sentence. Thanks!

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
