Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not clear whether you are going for the ablation / or have already had it done.
Barring rare accidents, the majority are back to their previous status in the following week.

If there was no problem with sexual activity before ablation, there won’t be any after...
If one could claim two flights of stairs without a problem, there won’t be problem from sex.

If in doubt, the best option to reassure will be - to have supervised Treadmill Exercise EKG (TMT) in the Physician’s office.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
