pain/sorness in chet and throat

pain/sorness in chet and throat

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this? after having ablation surgery, every now an then I get a sore/hurt feeling in my throat and chest when taking a deep breath. It's very uncomfortable. at first I thought it was from working out my chest in gym. I stopped working out my chest and this morning I feel it. Please share if you experience this or know what it could be. Thank you!

Hi Angie, I have just had my ablation 2 weeks ago and this started the past few days same thing . I am still resting though and not done any working out yet , but got a lot of indigestion since the ablation procedure and if I take a deep breath in it makes me cough a bit and hurts my chest . I wonder if it's the inflammation from the procedure? So your not on your own there . Hope this helps

Best wishes

Sam ❤️

Hi Angie I had a cryoablation on18th August and have had discomfort in my chest and a dry cough until the last few days where I've finally seen a slow recovery. It's definitely getting better now. Yours will too. I would rest and allow your body to heal. It's been through a lot.

Hi

I had cryiablation in june and had sore throat and cough until few days ago. It is finally slowly slowly getting better but not yet 100%ok. I ve read that it is a frequent side effect and it can last some months .

Yes. I was incubated and had sore throat and cough for a while after ablation. This feeling Is way different.

You do not say how long since ablation. Only thing that springs to mind is that I remember getting a burning sensation in my throat during the first ablation. I was under Local Anesthetic and I came round a few times. It was a feeling of very hot gas / air in my throat. Could be part of the process and you are feeling a slight after effect. I should imagine it will clear in time but you could always ask the consultant.

It's been 3 months since my ablation. This is only 3rd time since ablation that I've felt this way???

I'm six days post cryo ablation, have breathlessness and some chest "discomfort", dry tickly cough and some irritation when I cough. I'm hoping it will go away soon.......!
