Ablation of arrhythmia other than atrial fibrillation – precautions on arriving home

You may develop a bruise in the right-hand groin area around your incision. This bruise may travel downwards and even down your leg due to the force of gravity and should be no cause for concern as long as your groin area continues to feel soft and supple. Feeling slightly sore in the groin area is entirely normal, and some will experience a small pea-sized spherical swelling.

If, however, you start bleeding or develop a more significant swelling/blood accumulation in the groin area, you must lie down and put pressure on your incision. Either contact us or another medical provider.

 

During the first week after surgery, you must go easy on your groin area by e.g. avoiding heavy lifting and long walks. In other words, only resume physical activities more than one week after surgery.

 

Many patients experience slight pains/pressure/a dull ache in the chest for a couple of days after treatment. If you experience this, Panodil 1g max X 4 a day may be taken to ease discomfort.

 

If you experience renewed arrhythmia, please contact your general medical practitioner with a view to scheduling an examination and further treatment.

 

Best regards
