I know there has been a few threads on this recently, so looking for a bit of guidance I can pass on to my mate Neil.
He had AF issues in the past, very minor, and they went away. However, signs started comning back, including what we thought was a HR monitor failure halfway round PPdS as it was saying his HR was all over the place. Turns out this was the start of it coming back.
Late last year, he has now been into Hospital and had an ablation, and is looking at different drug options. 3 months signed off work, which is not good as just joined a new company.
Basically, he is scared (4 kids - 15-9yrs old, wife), annoyed, depressed. He is a very fit 47 yr old triathlete, who I got into "proper" mtbing a few years ago and he loves it.
Just registered him and his missus for PPdS this year, but of course it looks unlikely that he can do it.
Advice, guidance, experiences, tips, dos and dont's all greatly appreciated.
