| | Ablation/phrenic nerve damage
I have recently had two ablations, one in July & another in October, this was in addition to one i had two years ago. Following the first one i started to get acute breathing problems. This was blamed on the the heart as the ablation didn't work as within a few days i was back in AF.
Following the third ablation my breathing became acute. I went into A & E 7 was kept in for three days then discharged as they couldn't work out what the problem was. They have since taken some x rays & found the right diaphragm was paralysed & twice the size of the left & was squashed up into the lung leaving me with one lung working.
They "think" the phrenic nerve has been damaged. I have asked for morte information but been told to "lets see what happens" & come back in 4 months!
Does anyone know if this will repair?, will i ever get my breathing back to somewhere near normal.
