MrM2, I'd say that my next marathon is going to be Dublin at the end of October as I can't see me getting back in time for anything else. It'll be my third time.
However I am rather tempted to find something different as my comeback ! I'll have to look at what's available.
Here's a list of all the UK and Irish marathons this year.
Well I had the cardio version on Thursday as planned, and all went well and I went back to my regular self.
But today it's gone back to irregular. I feel pretty sh!tty now.
I guess I'm just going to have to wait until the ablation now. I met the surgeon who's going to do it and he said he wants to wait 6 weeks after the CV.
Thanks MrM2 & Jugula.
I don't know when I'll be getting the ablation either, the consultant wasn't very specific, but I felt he meant weeks rather than months. I'm already on loads of meds such as blood thinners, beta blockers and rhythm enhancers.
I'll be having it at a hospital in Dublin.
I had a meeting with my consultant yesterday.
I still have AFib which is now 13 days after it started. Last time it cleared after 6 days. The consultant wants to do a cardioversion next week and then an ablation fairly soon afterwards.
Can't say that I'm looking forward to the next few weeks.
So, my GP called me today and is arranging for me to see the cardio specialist in the next day or two. She reckons if I'm not back on track by the time I see him, then he'll defibrillate me.
Excellent service it has to be said. I'll be back training by the weekend and may get to run Manchester yet ....
