My ablation went great. No AF after now about 1 month. What I did not realize is that the cough I was developing and pain in my chest was from a lung embolism that had me rushed to the ER 2 weeks post ablation. Fighting that scary problem now with blood thinning agents Warfarin and Lovenox shots. ER docs said the surgery caused the embolism. *Makes the Ablation look like small problem comparatively. A PE mimics pneumonia symptoms. Be aware of your body reactions after you have the ablation. Recovery time from a Lung embolism is so much longer time wise. Trying to stay upbeat. Was on blood thinners pre and post ablation. Pradaxa was suppose to keep the blood thinned so that clots did not form. Ugh.
