    Hi Billy Higgins,


    I encourage you to speak with your primary care physician or cardiologist regarding the type of activity they think is appropriate for your body.  Only your physician knows all the details about your health and can safely answer this question.


    Best of luck,

    Monica M. Skidmore, MS, RD
