I just wanted to check in and report on my experience being a part of the RF Balloon Ablation Clinical Trial. I had it done on Friday, August 16th and so far so good. The surgeon says that he was only in there for 45 minutes! I woke up feeling fine but uncomfortable. This was owing to the way I was stitched. In the words on my nurse "They did you dirty". She said it looked like they tried to sew my belly to my thigh. OUCH!!! It took 3 of them to free me from that 1 stitch. After this, I was ok. The only pain killers they wanted to offer was Tylenol which would have been fine if not for the stitch, removal and the 30+ minutes of pressing on it to stop the bleeding. They eventually had to use something to clot the blood. So needless to say, I was kept overnight. I went home the next morning and all was fine for the most part. I am back at work full time (today was my first day). I am a little tired but otherwise fine. I can tell when I overdo it. My body definitely lets me know. But I'm learning to listen and not to rush. I'm happy to answer any questions.
