“It’s a common procedure for people with afib and fortunately so far so good! I’m doing great,” the “Shark Tank” entrepreneur said to Page Six via email Thursday. (RELATED: Mark Cuban Considering 2020 Presidential Run)

“I was just limited in what I could do because of the timing of the procedure,” he continued. “If we would have filmed [Friday] it wouldn’t have been an issue.”

Cuban has been open with the public about the afib, the heart condition he suffers from. Mayo Clinic defines the condition as “an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.” (RELATED: Mark Cuban Hints That Dirk Nowitzki Could Be Done At The End Of The Season)

“I also recommend that anyone experiencing an irregular heartbeat visit their doctor and read up on arterial fibrillation,” Cuban told Page Six. “If you take the right steps it’s a condition that can be dealt with.”
