Thanks for posting your query.
Since the atrial fibrillation is well controlled and he is on a dual pacemaker, there is nothing worrisome now. The blood tests will take some time to come back to normal.
He can indulge in having sex but not an aggressive session. This will help him psychologically in a better recovery. Being tired is a part of his illness. A good diet and mild exercise regimen will help in early recovery.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
