Anyone done a Medical (drug) cardioversion for their heart?

Anyone done a Medical (drug) cardioversion for their heart? I would like the gory details on how that is done. I can't seem to find any info on the web about this procedure.

What is the risk of death ?
What is the risk of complication?
What is the risk of stroke?
Are you put the sleep for the drug cardioversion or can you be awake?
How often does it have to be done?


Now my back story.
I am the type that runs where I hear bad news. I got scared. We were both ed to find out I need aortic valve regurgitation replacement and have afib, I was only 45 years old . We moved to a Reid cardiologist. Then everything went fair tell surgery. I had a aortic valve regurgitation replacement and a maze procedure done. After Surgery I had extreme severe pain tell the switched me to a Tylenol type medicine. For some reason the normal medicine didn't work. That hospital also does awake breathing tool removal unless you say otherwise, I would not recommend that. Then I was left with a severe cough and a backache, luckily they had recliner you could sleep it. That helped the back. The Reid cardiologist wanted me to do a electrical cardioversion because the maze procedure didn't work. For what all I read on the web a Maze procedure is the last resort for afib. I cancelled the electrical cardioversion that was suppose to be done on Christmas eve. We finally decided to change to I.U. cardiologist this year we really like him and he understand us. He also got my afib undercontrol with meds.

This is why I am terrified if having any procedure done even it means talking medication for the rest of my life.

That why I want to know the full details of a Medical (drug) cardioversion for their heart

I still have the back & cough issue but I can still do things but I have to rest more often. I get warn out really easy then most people. My elderly mother doesn't want me to do manually snow shovel even though I cleared to do those things.

I also wouldn't recommend some nursing homes in the U.S. they need major improvement not just the staff but what furniture they use. I experienced that as well but I got out sooner thanks to my primary doctor.

I haven't but I believe my Mom (90) had something similar done earlier this year, an Ablation.

She's been wearing an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) for the last 12years that's helped several times.

I found this is from a google search cardioversion
