Thanks for your question.
Just to clarify, are you asking if metoprolol should be continued or not?
No, as I seem to need it as the racing heart goes into Abif after about 30-60 minutes. I am concerned about the side affects and ever being able to get off of it. The cardioloist said after we get my thyroid back to "normal" we will evaluate ablation or continuing meds.
I want to be able to get off the meds and go back to my healthy state but hear little to suggest this. [ My afib was set off during a virus last Feb. and now every new med or vitamin etc added sets off afib again.]
My Internal Medicine Doc is working with me on the thyroid at this time but paints rather a confusing, bleak picture. I am sorry my questions is "can I hope to get back to normal weight, blood pressure, etc and off the meds once the TSH is down to a "normal rate"?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX you are right about getting back to "normal". I do not feel good about ablation and the 60% sucess on my type problem and I tried the levathyroxine and my heart went right into atrial fib.
I will keep working with the present approach.
