Open heart surgery is like any type of surgery in which the chest is opened to operate on the heart muscles, valves or arteries. Therefore, we think care after this type of operation is accurate, but movement
and activity after open-heart surgery are necessary, in addition to foods to enhance physical activity.
The importance of exercising after open heart surgery
When you're having open heart surgery, it's natural to ask if it's safe to exercise afterward. Answer: Yes!
There are effective tips to rejuvenate and restore energy that can strengthen your heart and aid recovery. It is therefore recommended that you attend cardiac rehabilitation sessions, or practice the safe sports that I have prepared for you below.
Before starting to enumerate the safe and necessary exercises during the post-operative period, in the first 6 to 8 weeks, avoid lifting heavy objects, and twisting towards the ground. Then do the following exercises:
Use the incentive spirometer 5 times a day. For each session, make sure you relax your shoulders and take 10 slow, deep breaths. Take
your time between breaths. Put your hands on the incision of your chest, and make a strong cough 3 times. It is worth noting, that there is a way to burn fat by breathing.
Mobility and flexibility exercises:
Do these exercises before and after walking. Don't hold your breath, count out loud and take slow, deep breaths. Repeat the exercises 10 times, twice a day.
In the 4 to 6 weeks before you begin cardiac rehabilitation, do a twice-daily walking program.
If you feel chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, or palpitations, stop being active.
