Still in rhythm with a good regular heart but like a lot of us out there sensitive to any variance ache or pain. Don't like sleeping on my side as I find myself looking for a trip to the beat. I have had a good 6 months with no problems.
I have done some 4 Cyclo Cross races since . They have been great altho I'm at the back of the 'field'.
The advice on this forum is to give your heart 3 months to recover after an ablation and if you google Dr John a keen cyclist and expert on AF you will find he says the same.
After my ablation 6 months ago I completely rested up the first month, second month I did some walking and into the 3rd month I started riding my cross bike but watched my heart rate and didn't really go much out of level 1. After my 3 month Review my EP said I could compete again. I then started by doing some roller sessions and did my first x race 2 weeks later. In my racing and training I am at most on level 3/4 but have not pushed it to my max yet. I have seen my form improve but it is a slow process. I'm looking to push it a bit further in 2015 but I think my days of red lining it are gone. I think that it was those maximum efforts where I would nearly fall off the bike at the finish that led to my AF in the first place. As I have said before the ablation was the right path for me and altho I'm not totally out of the woods yet and won't be signed off by the EP until 12 months I know even with a possible second and if need be third ablation I am wrestling my life back from AF and living life to the full again.
