GET WELL GET FIT


Following heart surgery patients take between three and six months to regain their quality of health, although it must be said that this is not guaranteed, it depends on the individual.


Some are able to speed up this process by also working to improve their fitness levels.  However, not everyone is either willing or able to take up going to the gym, running or attending dance classes etc , especially as it is usually the older generation who are most in need of treatment to rectify cardiac problems.


There is another option, take up walking.  The advantage of this being that the individual tailors their walking to suit their needs.  Recent studies have suggested that a daily stroll of 20 minutes or so will benefit your health, so it can be seen that an individual could start walking at this level and increase theirs efforts as and when they felt ready to do more.


After open heart surgery you will have rehabilitation for approximately 6 week, after rehabilitation ask the rehabilitation nurses if you can take up walking with a walking group.  Were you health is concern always asked a health professionals for advise.


​For those who wish to take up walking in a more energetic fashion, say covering several miles per session, we trust that the following will be of assistance,  This type of activity is usually carried out in the countryside, offering both varied scenery and fresh air and should not be attempted alone.  Walking groups are plentiful, one such organisation is the University of the Third Age (U3A).  Branches exist throughout the country, and many have walking groups.  Joining one will ensure you have like-minded companions to share your walk and form new friendships.


One of the member of the Cardiac Support Group is a walker and is also involved with a U3A walking group.


If you are interested you can contact us on 01482 626773 or email on info@cardiacsupportgroup-hull.co.uk


You could also look at U3A wesite or you could getting involved with both the Cardiac Support Group and the U3A.
