More details please: It is unlikely but possible depending on the extent of the ablation, zone of the ablation. There is always risk of a possible damage and perforation to ablated site which can present with a variety of symptoms. In your case it has been quite some time and chances are it is not related.Is it only when you sleep? WHen exercising? can you describe the pain
