A friend (does not use computer) had this problem for about ten years and now has been advised she will have to have surgery. Problem is all of the doc tors do not agree.

She is 69 years old and very concerned.

Thank you.

Hi Colleen,
Can you tell us more about your friend's diagnosis? This is one of those conditions that can be mild to severe, with symptoms or no symptoms. Sometimes, no treatment is necessary; other times, prompt treatment is required.

What tests have been done, and what were the results?
What doctors are being consulting?
What are the different doctor's recommendations?

Here are some great resources for you to share with your friend:
- Atrial Fibrillation Definition & Overview (click on left column for Prevention, Treatments, News)
- EmpowHER Condition: Atrial Fibrillation
- EmpowHER Article: Do you know if you have atrial fibrillation? How would you know?
- EmpowHER Video: Causes of atrial fibrillation

We hope to hear back from you soon! Thanks for being such a great friend!
