In September I had a heart ablation. I continued to have labored breathing after the ablation. After six weeks of going through this my cardiologist Took an x-ray and compared it to the one before the ablation. He sent me to the hospital to have a CT scan done. He told me that the results show My right diaphragm is paralyzed. This is what's causing my labored breathing. This was due to the electrophysiologist injuring my phrenic nerve during the ablation. Needless to say, I am not happy with the results. He is wanting me to continue this breathing for six more months to see if it will heal on its own. If it doesn't, he is going to insert a diaphragm pacemaker. I just want to know if anyone has ever had to go through such a procedure and what the final results were. Thanks so much
