I had my procedure for AF done by cryoablation. I was very heavily sedated, but it must of worn off a bit as I must of come round. And had pain under the left side off my ribcage. I said I was in pain there and then i was out for the count again. The next thing I knew I was back on the day case ward. That was 2weeks ago yesterday 20th nov. I am very tired at the moment, so I am listening to my body and resting. I phoned this organisation and they said don't put any pressure on my chest or carry any thing heavy. And they said it takes 6months for the heart to be fully healed. I am not on medication for the AF now but still take my 6 1/2 & 7 mg of warfarin alt days and my blood pressure tablets. I hope it is successful as it was very scary having it done. But will all your best wishes I couldn't back out of it, so thankyou everyone for your support.
