In brief: Go see your doctor

You may be right to be afraid to start a rigorous exercise program.
See you doctor and discuss your fears. Tests can be done to check all systems and hopefully give you an all clear!

In brief: Daily walking

Start very slow. You may walk(or exercise in a pool).
You don't need to run or carry weights. If you jointed a gym, ask or advice to the trainers they have (especify you are just beginning to exercise).Go slow. Short distances for short periods but try to have a routine 4-5 times a week half hour to 45 minutes. Diet is important too.
