In brief: Cardiac Rehab

Follow up carefully with your cardiologist, attend cardiac rehab until you 'graduate' and consider seeing if your insurance provider has a program like 'silver sneakers' at an area gym so you can continue to improve your conditioning and thereby support the medical therapy you will be receiving.
