Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.
Exercise is a must medicine for you. You should carry on with exercises and do exercises that makes you comfortable.
A good control of blood pressure, blood sugars and exercise will keep you healthy.
However, if you have any breathlessness during the exercise, you should get a cardiac work up done.
Share my opinion with your doctor.
I hope it helps.
