My Cardiologist Approved My Exercise Program

He was amazed that two weeks after surgery, I was able to do 60 minutes on the treadmill without discomfort, pressure, or pain, and that I was able to do a 30 minute walk with my wife last night.  But he said that was all for the good, and to continue at this level while waiting for cardiac rehab to start.  No weight lifting, however.  We went out for another walk this evening of equivalent length -- but climbing our driveway is definitely a bit more demanding.  Of course, it always has been -- it's a steep driveway -- about 120 feet of climb over a distance of perhaps 500 feet.
