I’m recovering well since my ablation. I’m on flecainide 100mg twice a day and Apixaban twice a day. Still taking lansoprazole for another 2 weeks post op.
I’ve now developed a new symptom over the last few days and just wonder if anyone has encountered this before. In the mornings and evenings I find it a real struggle to drink or eat anything - even Water is a struggle. Nightmare for taking my meds and my water consumption is plummeting! Water seems to get stuck midway down my oesophagus and stay there for ages - an hour or so. If I try to eat something it can be quite painful and sometimes have to vomit it back up.
It then eases by about midday for a few hours and then starts getting difficult again by early evening...
I just wonder if it has anything to do with inflammation of the heart while it’s healing?
Thank you! 🌻
