I've had two ablations now, one July last year and second one 23rd Jan. First was for AF and 2nd AF and AF flutter. Was ok the first few days, but then the 'heaviness' in the lungs came back.. I was told before the 2nd ablation that the cause of this feeling,was because the lungs couldn't pump the blood to the heart properly. (Picked up in an echocardiogram that I had requested) had to go to hospital yesterday for cardioversion as I had gone back into flutter again, pulse was 142bpm. second shock got me back into sinus rhythm and pulse was 62bpm and I was sent home. The 'heaviness' is still there though, and it tires me. I am on amiodorone, bisoprolol, furosimide. And evenings I take ramipril and warfarin. Anyone on here experiencing this lung 'complaint'? I wonder if my lungs are damaged in some way, but my oxygen levels are nearly always 100%
