Argon plasma coagulation experience?

Yesterday was my second argon plasma coagulation to cauterize lesions near the duodenum. both times I have had a lot of abdominal pain for the first few days afterwards, which seemed to surprise my GI as he said I shouldn't. Also a lot of heartburn this time. Anyone else experience this?

thanks ...
