Almost 5 weeks since my cryoablation. I suffered phrenic nerve damage as a result, so breathing a problem. Any exertion leaves me gasping. I cannot sleep lying down. I have lost any independence I had, as I cannot walk more than a few feet without dizziness and breathlessness.
Before the procedure I used to get af episodes every 8 days, lasting 2 days. Since ablation I now get this and more episodes in between lasting between a few hours and half a day.
Am I wrong to presume the ablation hasn't worked?
Feeling very disheartened at the moment as I know I couldn't face another ablation, especially in light of the phrenic nerve injury. Am I likely to be left worse than before I had the procedure or am I judging too soon?
