Like you I suffered terrible stabbing pains to my heart post procedure, they were agony initially,I couldn't lie flat, bend, lift
, and definately couldn't work, but gradually they got easier. I'm still having the pain 11 months on, however less regularly. It's really nice to hear that others have had the same experience as I was beginning to think I was imagining them. I've been told that it's something that will eventually go but have been given no time scale.
