I don't think that is anything to be concerned over though you may just want to contact the doctor to see what they have to say but I think it is kind of a common thing to occur and will go away after a while. As well you will likely notice your heart rate gets elevated quite easily for a while maybe even up to 3 months. To be honest it took over a year for my heart to fully calm down but I was also having a lot of symptoms the year before so my heart was pretty stressed out even before I did the ablation so just take it slow if you feel like you are tiring out. It will get better with time, especially with the more time you stay out of tachycardia. Hang in there.
Hi, I think it's normal I noticed a knot or lump at my incision site as well it and any bruising will eventually go away. I just relaxed a lot and geeked out playing Skyrim , ME3 and a few others lol. It took me a good 6 months before I felt "normal" again so just try to relax take care of yourself and take it slow like michellepetkus said.
Hey Razzel, under my incision site, I had a bit of a lump...it wasn't very large, but definitely felt an area that was hardened. I'm fairly sure it's normal. For me, it took about maybe 2-3 weeks before it dissipated.
Also, before my ablation, when I was doing all my reading on other's ablation experiences, I ran into a number of people that mentioned a similar lump under the incision area. Some described it as a pea-sized lump, other said it was larger, like walnut-sized...but in all cases that I've read, it was normal and just took time to drain.
I did reach out to my dr, and she said it was normal so I have relaxed alot but I'm still so paranoid lol. Thanks for the tips. I'v actually started to feel normal in the last three days. It weird, I honestly think the biggest change is not being on digoxin anymore. I mean I know the ablation has helped and has changed a alot because I have been eating chocolate like crazy, started slow of course but its been awesome and with not being on dig anymore, my heat intolerance is gone, I dont feel like more **** than i should with being on the dig.
HA I love skyrim, Iv been sucked into minecraft and a little Black ops 2
I actually had to call a nurse hot line like 3 time last night becuase first it was a half a pea shape, then house later it was elongated and then it was back to a pea shape with some yellowing around the skin. So I call all three times and called my dr. office twice today, I feel like such a noob lol but like i said i get paranoid that something is going to go wrong.
I really think it's normal. My husband had lots of bruising and lumps on both sides. The bruising actually got bigger for a couple of days after the procedure. I got worried too and called the doctor but they said it was ok.
Yeah I called the dr. twice. I feel so stupid sometimes but I would rather be safe then sorry
Don't feel stupid -- it's your life, your money and you live with the results. The medical staff is there to help you!
