I don't know if you read some of my posts from earlier threads but I originally developed Afib in 2005 I had an Ablation that went bad & damged the pericardium, My situation got worse as the Pericardium became more inflamed I was told conflicting info from many Cardioligsts , bought all the books, even talked to the Dr's that wrote the books, they were all very nice but this is such an obscure condition since it is very tough to detect haw bad things are , even with all the scans & tests they told me I was moderate, when the Surgeon told me after my stripping that the Pericardium was like a think white blanket & was far worse than tests showed,
I tried all the treatments, Colchicine etc NSAID's for over a year. Everyones situtation is different though. I have heard of a few people who had success but they caught it early. I was also told I could exercise with it getting worse & that was wrong too, It was far worse about 1 hour after exercise & would take 24 hours for the pain to go away.
Don't be hasty, Have faith they will get a grip, just make sure you have the best people working with you, I went to several BIG name Hospitals
& experts & even they were not fully up on exactly how to deal with things. There is a little envelope next to my post that allows you to email directly to me, Feel free to write direct, some people have even called to talk, I can email that info if you wish, I had other serious issues with it & I couldn't be better now so Keep the faith !!
