I had a pulmonary ablation procedure done about 4 weeks ago for afib. Just prior to the procedure I had a TEE. Since my procedure I have had a persistant cough, no cold symptoms, just a dry cough. Could this be aresult of the TEE or the procedure itself? Is there any reason to be concerned about this symptom? I can't think of any reason I have a cough, in terms of a cold or allergies.
IT is most likely procedure related. There is probably some irritatation or inflammation that formed in your lungs. Are you having any fevers? I am assuming that you are otherwise ok. However, the fact that it is going on for about 4 weeks is somewhat concerning. I would at least see someone to make sure that is well. A chest xray might be of some help.
