I’m 25. During a check up they have found that there is a hole around 16mm. Right side of the heart have enlarged a bit. Now 2 months ago i had catheter closure with amplatzer occluder. So i didn’t have palpitations before the operation. But after that during the day i ahd them a lot. Next day after discharge i thought i was dying suffocating went to ER and v1 ecg looked pretty weird to me but doc says ok (echo,ecg and xray is done).
So after 2 weeks my palpitations are lessened. and now when i lay in my bed my HR falls as small as 45-55 bpm. Which never happened prior to op. seems like my heart is working less for the same blood flow now. But when i lay down, esp on my left side, i have some palpitations. I went to doc and they used holter and looks like they are harmless extra systoles. doc said in any time you can develop arrhythmia because the device is pressing on the healthy parts and it affects rhythm. But we don’t know.
Also you have a hole so that part was supposed to be normal heart tissue. that is another factor to the arrhythmia risk. So im advised not to drink coffee or tea nor use my adhd meds. which i won’t.
What do you think about laying to the left side? it feels as if i can feel the device in me friction to somewhere. that’s probs psychosomatic feeling but I really get palpitations when i lay on the left side vs right side. Considering the heart is at the left side. Is it possible that im pressuring my heart?
What activities are risks for asd closed peopl via device?
How is palpitations?
Thanks and I hope you all recover
