Hi I’m on day 2 recovering from a cryoablation. I had a complication of a pericardialeffusion which was just a tiny rim that was unchanged so they weren’t concerned.. I had a local anaesthetic so was aware of what was going on.. They used a pacer to jog my heart into Afib as it was in SR. I wonder whether anyone else found the experience overwhelming, I was told I may feel strong hiccups but you couldn’t compare the feeling to hiccups.. It was awful.! I am feeling very well and am happy I had it done but regret not having a general anaesthetic..The experience was too much for me.! My heart is in SR so far so if it stays it was worth it! But if there is a next time I will definitely have a general anaesthetic..
