I had my first ablation under GA. The procedure took 7 hours and my lung was punctured. I got a urinary tract infection probably through being catheterised after the procedure and felt groggy for at least 3 weeks afterwards. But, my PAF stopped for about 7 months and I am now on the waiting list for a second ablation. I am hoping to see my EP to discuss whether I can have the second ablation under sedation and also whether it would be better to have a cryoballoon ablation rather than a RF ablation.
Has anyone had a cryoballoon ablation or an ablation under sedation? If so can they give me any advice or info I should discuss with my EP?
