There is no limit: However, if the rhythm keeps recurring in spite of medication to prevent that, probably better just to use medicine to control the heart rate. Atrial fibrillation can be well tolerated as long as the heart rate is not too rapid.

A 47-year-old member asked:

How many times can you have lasik done?

Dr. Richard Witlin
LASIK Surgery 46 years experience
Once or twice: Most ophthalmologists will only do lasik once. With lasik, a flap is created in your cornea to perform the procedure. Most docs will not make a second flap. Sometimes lasik patients do require a touch-up procedure. This means lifting the flap up and doing the touch-up if possible or doing prk type surgery over the original flap, not cutting the cornea again.
