I'm 83 & have run for 70+ yrs, but last year when perhaps not fully over a cold I was reduced to walking & often breathless. Dr sent me to cardiologist who said warfarin for life after cardioversion. However have steadily got going & can manage a 10k if don't exceed 'conversational pace' & walk steepest hills.I train about 5X/month & usually fl better after 2-3m. My dr is supportive - we neither fancied the cardio/warfarin route. A letter in May mag gave a similar experience. Any similar experiences or comments?
Drs confirm that I have AF; cardiologist says I need warfarin & cardiov'n; GP willing for me to follow the 'active treatment'.
