With that medical history and current medication list, it is prudent to have routine blood test 2-3 times a year and see your doctor at least twice a year.

If the rate is well controlled with atrial fibrillation and you remain in sinus rhythm, it may be possible to try and discontinue the carvedilol. On the other hand, if there there are occasional episodes with rapid rate, it would be advisable to continue with the carvedilol. I would be satisfied with clinical monitoring if you are otherwise doing well.
