Need your help. I may have suffered vagal nerve damage during my Cryoablation at St Barts in Jun 16. My EP cannot ruled it out.
I continue to suffer from the following symptoms a year on:
Bloating and Burping
Persistent abdominal band-like pain
Increased pain to stomach when l have ectopics (atrial).
The EP's Procedure Report reads "After first freeze in LSPV dramatic vagal response with asystole needing pacing which triggered AF".
I have since seen a Gastroenterologist where l had a CT scan and a G1 Endoscopy which revealed no problems. Also l saw a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medince who is of a similar opinion as me, in that the vagal nerve could have inadvertently been damaged during the procedure. He states in his letter to me that nerves to take a long time to settle down and recover and this could take up to three years.
My question is, has anybody suffered vagal nerve damage as this is quite rare l believe, or has any information which may be of help to me.
Any help will be much appreciated
