Thanks for writing to us.
After a cardiac catheterisation, there is a possible gastric acidity with gastro esophageal reflux which is causing you these symptoms. You need to take adequate antacids and start having a bland semi solid food at every two hours to avoid these symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
