    Atrial Flutter
    The overall experience was excellent. But perhaps Dr Brull might have suggested ballpark levels of risk associated with each of the three alternative options open to me: electroshock treatment, ablation via vein-to-heart, and the apparent primary recommendation (based on my currently feeling quite well) just-continue-with-the-meds. On the other hand, I guess I could have asked!
