Persistent Atrial Fibrill

My friend is living with persistent atrial fibrillation due to mitral commusirotomy done earlier. She gets fluid accumulation in lungs at times. She takes nebivolol and digoxin. Is that the only way to lead the life or Is there a better "drug or exercise" to avoid this fluid accumulation from happening? Pls advise.

Hello, I went through your query, it is are no permanent solution for her condition. Fluid restriction will be beneficial but there are no excersie or better drugs to control this situation from happening. Most important is taking the present medications regularly without skipping a single dose, and having regular follow up with your doctor.
