Post Ablation Holter for 3rd Class Airman Certificate
Anybody pilots out there?
If you're on this forum and a pilot, then I presume it went OK.
Air your FAA success or horror story here (pun intended).

As a pilot (Commercial, Instrument, Multi-engine land and sea, rotorcraft (helicopter) and flight instructor, publicly posting "horror stories" about the FAA aeromedical certification policies is ill-advised. The FAA is a good organization and they try to do their best in issueing waivers. They ground pilots for good reasons. Not to be mean or evil.  Confidentiality regarding their individual decisions is important to them. Maybe it should be or shouldn't be, but it is. Waivers to specific medical requirements are in the form of a "statement of demonstrated ability". There organizations such as the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilot's Association) that can provide assistance if a waiver is denied.

I'm not really interested in waivers.
I had a successful RF ablation. I'm curious as to how smoothly the 3rd Class App goes when you have to submit the "follow up stuff."
From here... http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/avs/offices/aam/ame/guide/app_process/exam_tech/item36/amd/arrhythmias/
it looks like it's up to the AME.
