Once cardiac rehab has been completed I would suggest joining a health club or the YMCA and continueing with the treadmill and recuse bike exersizes. Some minor strength exersizes are good but be sure not to put to much stress on.
I would also suggest that the patient get a heart rate monitor for their workouts and keep their heart beat in a safe area and always have thier nitro tablets handy.
All exersizes should gradually be increased as time goes on and its important to continue the exersize program religiously.
I tell you these things from experience.

I ve had small amounts of blood in my urine for the past 14 months. 58 yr old male. Multiple urinalysis test over this period has always turned up something. Most recent one last week returned results of hemoglobin of +1, and RBC of 4-10/HPF with comment microscopic rbcs, wbcs, and casts are unstable . In exploring potential problems I ve had kidney and testicle ultrasound, and two cytoscopy s, one under general with multiple bladder biopsies that all came back fine. I am a road bicycle rider, but not extreme at all- 5-10 miles a week in the winter and more in the good weather- just a post heart attack guy (11 years) in reasonable shape trying to stay that way. Thoughts?

I need some advice from one in the medical field preferably. How bad is this for a family member who has recently had a heart attack. Will the hospital most likely advise him to stop - surely so. Family (including teen kids) might not be enough to convince one who is stubborn. Its tough being on the other side. I need help and advice please. Thanks....
My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance? I need help!!!
Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?
The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination. I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
