WPW: Yes, you should be able to. Wolfe Parkinson White is a re-entry tachycardia. EP Cardiologists abate the re-entry path to restore normal sinus rythem.

Ablation: it can take a few months for the heart to settle down after ablation. Let your EP doc know what you're feeling and follow up

Ablation: it is a good idea to have a more detailed assessment to find out why you had fast rate, but if ekg is normal, maybe you had another reason for fast heart rate.
