Who is the correct candidate for WPW ablation

I recently got diagnosed for WPW (43yrs). I am health do lot of hard exercise like weights ,spin and mountain biking etc..
Correct weight BMI is 24. No drinking vegan all my cholesterol levels are good except my HDL is low but the ratio between LDL/HDL less than 3.  Recently in my physical exam doctor asked me take an EKG found delta waves. I never had any symptom and my resting heart is always between 55 to 70. When I do my exercise I took my heart rate to 180. Never had any issue. Met my cardiologist I went for Stress and Echo test. Stress test is fine except delta waves. I am going to meet  electro physiologists. I am not sure what to expect. Is there a need for me to go for ablation ? Since I never had any issue for the last 43 years should wait for first occurrence arrhythmia and then think about. Other question is should I wear sports heart rate monitor all the time and look for irregular heart beat. What kind of precautionary measure I have to follow. And what is easier way to predict the arrhythmia.

Thanks

Hi, if you have the Wolff-Parkinson-White pathway but don't have any symptoms, you probably won't need treatment. In some people without symptoms, the extra pathway may spontaneously disappear over time.

Your doctor may be able to evaluate your risk of having episodes of a fast heartbeat based on findings from an ECG or electrophysiological testing. If he or she determines that you may be at risk of an event, your doctor may suggest radiofrequency catheter ablation. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. And Good Luck.
