Help Afib after second ablation & cardioversion... now what do I do?

I’m a fit, athletic 62 year old male with no health issues other than recently developing heart arrhythmias.  Zio patch and holster monitors have confirmed I have occasional Afib, flutter and SVT episodes... the trifecta.  My Afib episodes were rare.  I had a first ablation in April and episodes of SVT returned.  After a second ablation in July I have now developed a persistent Afib and just this week had to undergo a harrowing cardioversion.  I’m in NSR... for now.  My next visit to the cardiologist is a few weeks from now.  After two ablations and one cardioversion and checking all the good health habits boxes I am a bit perplexed.  I would welcome help in asking the right questions such that I can figure out the next move... third ablation?  I can’t deal with another cardioversion.
