Afib and Ablation

I was wondering if anyone out there has experience with atrial fibrillation and treatment by ablation? Did it work, how was the recovery, and did you notice any difference once your afib was dealt with? 

I had a big crash in May, front puncture at 65 kph, and hit the deck hard enough to break three ribs. They also noticed arrhythmia and after recovering I did an effort test on a stationary bike hooked up to an ECG. This showed clear atrial fibrillation.

I don't really feel any symptoms, I figured that any lack of power was because I had gone into the red and "blown up". Now I know what it is, I can feel the palpitations sometimes if I really hunt for it. It does seem very linked to sleep. Not sure if the afib causes bad sleep, or is provoked by bad sleep but it goes hand in hand.

I would welcome any guidance on post ablation experience.
