I had my first catheter ablation on tuesday afternoon (less than 48 hours ago) and am now at home in a LOT of pain. Especially when lying down it is genuinely agony. All over my chest, upper back, left shoulder and arm. I have just spoken to the Heart Nurses at Liverpool Chest & Heart hospital who have said not to worry too much and use coedine and paracetamol to try and ease the pain.
I also have a swollen and sore throat from which I am coughing up lumps of phlemy blood, which I am presuming is due to having a tube shoved down my throat during the procedure which was done under GA.
AND (sorry to go on & on) my groin is still seeping blood where the three catheters were inserted!
Has anybody else experienced these post ablation issues?
