I had a radio frequency ablation procedure about 10 years ago. I had some extra excitatory cells that caused an occasional episode of tachycardia.
The doc went in through a vein in my leg and the issue about taking it easy for a while had to do with not blasting out the plug that was put in the vein at the site. The doc told me right after the procedure that he was able to ablate the offending cells. I could resume regular exercise after about 4 weeks and I was given that info in my post-op instructions.
The best thing to do might be to call your cardiologist about what would be right for you at this point.
