This is more just a query, rather than looking for a definite answer: what sort of time frame after catheter ablation does phrenic nerve injury occur? I only ask as, having read a few paper online I know it's something that does happen. But none of them go into much detail about how long after it occurs.
My assumption is it's during or immediately following. However, I'm currently suffering badly with severe breathing issues that are only getting worse and having spent 3 months sick off work and all kinds of tests and appointments, I'm no closer to finding out what caused this.
I'm beginning to lean towards some sort of nerve damage, or a diaphragm issue. I had catheter ablation last June and my breathing problems started in July this year.
