Best person to…: Answer that question is the surgeon/ cardiologist who did the procedure since (s)he knows your case intimately before, during, & after procedure & can best determine when u are ready for exercise, what kind, & how much.

Do That Now: Get out your gym playlists because you're good to go. Once the groin sites have healed up, there should be no particular reason to avoid exercise. Either the ablation worked and the arrhythmia is cured, or it didn't and you have a chance of seeing it again.
