In brief: Start with walking

You may walk as long and as fast as tolerated.
You may be able to increase the rigor of the exercise with continued experience. If you get breathless or have chest pain, limit your exercise and see your doctor.

In brief: Ask your doctor

Best to discuss this with the doctor who did your angioplasty.
However, walking is generally safe.
