Very concerning.

Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for sending the question.

This is very concerning that your husband is not able to even walk. This is an emergency in my opinion. I recommend that you bring him to the local emergency room for a comprehensive evaluation including laboratory testing and possibly imaging studies. This may be related to his recent heart condition but other things need to be ruled out as soon as possible.
