My mother-in-law went back into a-fib less than a week after her last cardio-version.  So no more c-v for her.  She is 77 years old and has had several strokes and TIAs and broke her hip last year.  She is on lasix (40 mg a day), and atenolol (25mg twice a day), simvastatin, warfarin, zoloft, omaprazole, klor-con (potassium), and detrol- la.    Prior to the most recent rounds of a-fib, we had been walking up to a mile 3 or 4 times a week (slowly- she uses a rolling walker).  I know I have to limit her activity level while things settle down (her pulse is still very high and blood pressure a bit low), but is it possible she will be able to resume at least some physical activities?
