At a second opinion yesterday, the cardiologist (trained in electrophysiology) read the Holter Monitor report and said this looks like paroxysmal. The report read in part: "Telemetry strip recording shows underlying rhythm to be normal sinus rhythm to atrial fibrillation with occasional poorly controlled ventricular rates." So he said cardioversion doesn't really do much for paroxysmal A Fib and he asked me to ask the cardiologist I saw first who scheduled cardioversion to review the Holter Monitor report. So I called to ask that and someone called back and said they agreed that it showed paroxysmal and cardioversion wouldn't be advised. So I said what about the scheduled cardioversion, will that be canceled, and they acted like they hadn't even noticed that before that it was scheduled and they would have to check with the cardiologist and call me back. Which didn't happen yet. So my question is: Have you been told that cardioversion is a waste of time with paroxysmal A Fib? And how would you figure out you had paroxysmal A fib for sure without doing another Holter monitor? Every time I've had an EKG or someone listen to my heart since this all began in March, I've been in A Fib.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
