Can Atril Fibulation reoccur aftter an ablation procedure?

I HAD TWO ABLATION PROCEDURES ONE IN OCT 2OO7  ANOTHER IN APRIL 2008. SO FAR I AM ABLE TO JOG WORK OUT AND BIKE RIDE. I AM 54 YRS OF AGE AND IN GOOD SHAPE.
MY QUESTION IS IT POSSIBLE AFTER TWO ABLATIONS TO HAVE ANY MORE EPISODES OF ATRIL FIBULATION?

Yes. I know someone who had to have a third ablation. I've also read about some people who have had 3 or more ablations and still have a-fib.

Yes, it is.  Unfortunately, there seems to be a recurrence rate for arrhythmias, even years after an ablation.  A recent article showed a 5 year recurrence rate of almost 30% (after tx for SVT - some developed afib).

My husband had an ablation a couple of weeks ago and yes the flutter has returned but not as bad.  Seeing his specialist again for another ablation.  The problem is he needs a hip surgery asap.  What is the outcome of having surgery when heart it in AF.

I do not think there is any special concern about surgery when suffering from AFib, other than a short period of increased blood clot risk due to having to come off of all aspirin and anticoagulants for a period of time.  

Even a simple colonoscopy requires getting off of aspirin and anticoagulants if they are being used.
