Post ablation stomach issues?

Well, I am 2 weeks post ablation and am feeling really great. No episodes, but even more interesting is that I am not experiencing the little spikes in HR when resting, or odd little heart movements that were not attributed to Afib.

However, new to me is when I eat I am feeling really full very quickly and get an incredible distended stomach, so much that my lower back hurts. Anyone else experience this? I suppose smaller meals is in order, any other tips? 

I am taking an antacid 30 minutes before breakfast that was prescribed on discharge from the hospital.

    Interesting JudyKol,  you are not taking any NSAID's are you. My stomach went crazy last summer/fall when i was taking too much of ibruprofen. 
    Let us know what your *** or cardio or EP doctors find out.

    Hi Judy

    Glad you're doing OK. speaking for myself, I was prescribed antacids,  but never needed them. And I never experienced stomach issues either. If it continues, check with your Doc. I had some asophagas discomfort, but it subsided after 10 days or so. But everyone is different. Hang in there! 🙂
