I’m Mark, and was diagnosed with AF (paroxysmal) in 2014 and have been taking bisoprolol, flea indie and 75mg aspirin since then. I’m a keen cyclist and work out regularly, often pretty hard. I’ve just turned 50.
In the past few months my AF has become permanent and will soon be getting my first (hopefully last...) ablation, and the forums here have been really helpful in understanding people’s experiences.
I realise everyone has a slightly different experience post-ablation, and some are really diverse. My question is about trying to find those of similar age, who cycle and work out, and get a view on whether (and how much, and for how long) there might be an impact on my ability to train hard. I’m no elite athlete, but like to push myself. The problem at the moment is I’m 130-135bpm at rest and often hit +175 when I’m working hard.
I know I need the ablation, but not quite sure where to set my expectations. Any words of wisdom greatly appreciated !
