Hi, I had a 2nd ablation this January. After additional heart shock, my heart has settled and no AF! I got a head cold over 2 weeks ago which developed into this rattling awful cough. Dr has given me antibiotics , on end of 2nd course and I'm no better. I'm bringing up yellow phlegm, not as much as I need to though. Last year I had a rattling cough 6 weeks after my 1st ablation and this was because I was in the start of heart failure which resulted in having the 2nd ablation. I have no signs of AF accompanying the cough this time so I'm hoping and praying it is just an infection and not the start of heart failure again. My oxygen level is 98% , pulse 63 and no temperature. I'm still on heart meds, could they be aggravating my lungs I wonder? If anyone out there has had anything similar happen to them I would appreciate your feed back.
Thanks for reading x
