‘So my doctor said I have to be weaned off alcohol and coffee’ she explained, and says that one of the side effects is high blood pressure. 

Lisa has also been prescribed beta blockers, but says that the medicine, ‘makes you tired’.

Atrial fibrillation is a condition where the heart beats irregularly, often causing poor blood flow.

It comes after Lisa released a balloon filled with her daughter Jaimi’s ashes at the top of Mount Kosciuszko, two years after the 33-year-old’s tragic death.

The Olympian announced she’d scaled Australia’s tallest mountain, sharing a gallery of photos documenting the treacherous expedition.

‘I needed something to help me find focus again and get out of bed, but my main purpose was to take my daughter’s ashes to the top of Mt Kosciuszko,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘I can honestly say it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. My beautiful friend Christine didn’t leave my side which I was very grateful for. The water is my comfort zone, not mountains,’ she explained.

‘The conditions were very challenging, plenty of snow, ice, rain, sleet, baby hail (sago), 60-100kmh winds, we had it all. Once we headed out, we were committed. No turning back. One step at a time.’

Once at the mountain’s peak, Lisa released a small pink balloon containing Jaimi’s ashes and dried flowers from her funeral into the air.
