Hi everyone, its day 5 after Ablation for Paroxysmal AF and Atrial Flutter.
Just found out from HR at work that I have been entitled to SSP only so I owe them £2000 in deductions from pay!!!!!! Today is the most depressing day of the year apparently (is for me!)
Was planning on going back to work on Friday but now will have to go back earlier.
My heart has been fine, had a few blips last night on and off but only lasted few seconds. My main concern is terrible indigestion. Which is getting worse not better. I had a Transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE) under general anaesethic. Was sore for first day and could feel swallowing but got better each day. On 2nd day started to have indigestion but Rennies helped. Then since 3rd day has got worse each day.
Feeling of too much gas and water in stomach wanting to burp but cannot. Pain in diaphram (definitely not heart) Acid reflux constantly after evening meal getting worse as evening goes on. Hiccups but cannot burp.
liquid rising into back of throat for 8 hours - 2am it usually begins to settle.
I saw doctor today - she was surprised said is indigestion! but said could be mild damage to oesophagus and prescribed Omeprazole capsules for a month. Hope this works as I'm feeling really miserable with this new development.
See there is connection to digestion and Vagus nerve. I don't have a gall bladder, I wonder is this has complicated matters. Has any one else had this problem?
