It is excellent that you are making such good progress. However any exercise that you embark on should be discussed with your specialist before you begin. This would include the use of the hot rooms at your Gym.

The cardiac specialist is in the position to assess you and make decisions regarding your activities. We wish you a continued good recovery.
