Yellow, pale complexion

I recently had a catheter ablation with complications of internal bleeding at the incision site. There is quite a bit of bruising on my legs but also, I have noticed my complexion is pale and somewhat yellowish. Might this be normal for the situation?

What you are describing sounds like a case of jaundice (too much bilirubin in the blood) and what has caused this, I can't answer. It certainly warrants a trip to the doctor. There are different causes of jaundice. Hepatitis, a problem with the liver, gallstones and anemia. As well as many others.  See your doctor and have him/her evaluate this.  Take care, Ally.
