My husband has quadruple bypass surgery 2 weeks ago. Our insurance does not cover cardiac rehab and he needs some kind of exercise plan. He is 60 years old and is doing reall well, but needs to start some kind of exercise plan. Can you help us. Suzanne
post discharge of patient for the first week he should be walking around in the house ....donot over stress just try to ambulate your body for the 2nd week daily walk less then 100metres is advocated apart from normal day to day routine activities for the 3rd week a walk less then 500metre per day is to be done from 4th week onward a 30min walk is advocated and restoration of life to all normal activities should be done
one main point is ...at any part of rehabilitation do not over do ....do it slowly and slowly ...never exert more then what your body can tolerate!!!! thanks
