I have quite enjoyed showing off my post ablation spectacular bruises to my kids - who are not easily shocked! I didn't have any pain from the groin bruises for a week or so but now get a real ache, especially at night, in that area. Enough to wake up and take a pain killer. Is it better to keep pretty immobile during the recovery period? It seems to be that on days when I have been walking longer distances the pain at night is worse; but maybe that's coincidence. I am very happy to have had a second ablation. The first was for flutter and I didn't even get a bruise. This time for fibrillation and the bruises are amazing as works of art; I don't mind having them, I'm just really looking for advice as to how to manage the recovery best.
