Hi all my AF roomies. As you know I had Ablation bout 2 weeks ago and my dry cough is horrid. Can only take shallow breaths. I was under for 5-6 hours and don't know if cough is coming from throat or chest. Throat I would suspect. I did have a transesophageal echocardiogram during the procedure, maybe that is the cause?
What say you more experienced than I ? Thanks :^)
1/15/17 - Update: long story short. Unable to breath lying down, breaths getting shorter and shallower. EP recommended trip to Emergency Room ASAP for CT heart scan. Thinking ablation problem or Pneumonia? - Was just released from overnight in Hospital - Tests prove pulmonary embolism, looks and feels just like Pneumonia. UGH. Through all this at least the Ablation is rock solid!! :^) Old blood thinner did not stop EP from happening. Now on 2 shots daily of Lovenox to the belly self administered. Pradaxa blood thinner should preclude clots from forming so now I am really concerned..
