Three stents installed, PCI done, was actively exercising before. Can I start moderate exercise?

Dear Doctor, I have 3 stents installed a month ago and I am 67 years. Before the PCI, I was exercising actively which include cross trainers, sit ups and push ups. now my family does not allow me to lift 20 kg items nor exercising. According to my doctor I can start moderate exercising without heavy sweating as it may thicken the blood . Can you provide your views ? Thank you

Hi Welcome to HCM ,
after stent placement , activity level will be decided by mainly pumping function of the heart , if your pumping function of heart is good than you can do moderate exercise , and in exercise do aerobic exercise like brisk walking , swimming , jogging ,
and less of weight lifting ,
also adopt healthy eating habit inform of having more amount of green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits and high fibre diet , avoiding fatty , fried , junk food .
take your medicine regularly and do regular follow up with your doctor ,
take care
