On what type of surfaces should I preferably do walking after a CABG treatment ?

I have undergone CABG 72 days back. Now I regularly walk about 50 minutes and cover about 3-4 kms. Should I walk on plain (less choice) or can I walk on up and down road?

welcome to healthcaremagic
walk in a place where pollution is less
roads are usually polluted with emissions from vehicles
walking in park is good
you can have music in low volume in plain to enjoy the walking
your doctor must have guided you .it should be fast walking

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
It would be wise not to walk uphill as this could increase the strain on your heart. Walk on plain level ground upto 40 minutes a day or according to your comfortable capacity. Avoid walking immediately after a meal. Sit for about an hour before walking. Have you had a heart attack before. If you experience any chest pain, sudden back pain or jaw pain during your walk you need to take the medication as advised by your Cardiologist and don't wait to go to the Hospital. Have a speedy recovery.
