Would like feedback from people w/afib (preferably sudden onset) who don't show classic symptoms of noticeable heart beat arrhythmia etc. Particularly interested in effect on blood pressure and fatigue and kidney function and or other effects.
I had a bovine aortic valve replacement (Edwards sapien 3) 2 yrs ago and just recently had several afib episodes. My electrophysiologist put me on Eliquis 25 mg 2x/day. Also changed my pacemaker controls. Don't know if afib is any better yet until next download. When I had afib episodes I did not notice any symptoms except maybe I was more fatigued.
Has anyone else experienced afib after valve replacement - 1 to 2 or more years post.
