Given that your age is 41 years, joining a cardiac rehabilitation program will do heaps of benefits in the form of secondary prevention, risk factor modification and developing a healthier lifestyle. The core concept will be Exercise and Diet prescription, therefore attending the rehabilitation program for month should be enough for you to get familiarized with "proper" exercising.
In a nut shell, "yes" it is necessary to enroll in a cardiac rehabilitation program.

Hello.Welcome.Everybody who has undergone CABG must enroll himself for Rehab exercise as this prepares the person for the lifestyle changes he has to undergo.These exercises prepare and educate the person about diet,exercises,daily chores and do's and dont's.You must and must join this program as your young age states that your present lifestyle is bad.Good luck.
