Hi - I had an ablation for paroxysmal AF (only 2 severe episodes in 6 years). I expected day surgery but was kept in overnight for observation. For the record, I also expected to be awake with sedation but was really out for the count, and for the TOE the week before also. I seemed fine until discharge but then threw up and felt awful. I recognised migraine symptoms as I have had them before, controlled by beta blockers. For 10 days now I have had migraine auras and vision problems along with headaches, but not violent ones. Very dull head, problems thinking etc., in fact a typical migraine for me, which can easily take 3 days to subside. This is now about 10 days and its lessening but recurring on and off, and I get tired too. Not like me. I have read on this forum that this reaction isn't too uncommon so, although I've reported it to my arrythmia nurse and will see her if it persists, I'm just sticking with it for another week or so. Good luck out there! (PS I'm still on apixaban, flecanaide and bisiprolol for the time being)
