I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to me ?....
I had my second ablation early December and the early signs look really promising- after a 3 day run of Af in the second week I have been Af free - which feels incredible. In terms of after effects from the ablation I have been very fortunate and the only side effect I have experienced has been chest discomfort.
For the last 7 days though I have had back pain. It comes from the top centre of the back and radiates around the the left rib cage right the way around to the front of the chest. It hurts to take deep breaths and is agony to lay down ( to the point where I have had to sleep sitting up). The sternum pain still occurs intermittently but is manageable. Has anyone experienced this post-ablation or is it likely that it is unrelated and merely coincidental? (Maybe I have strained some inter-costal muscles).
Thank you for taking the time to read,
