aortic aneurisym pre surgery exercise restrictions
i have just been diagnosed with a aortic aneurisym via ultra sound with no obvious health problems except slightly high cholesteral. i have an appt with a surgeon in a few days since my aneurisym is 5.7 cm.  my doctor has prescribed a beta blocker and zolof for blood pressure and cholesteral. i usually walk about 3 miles per day and do some stretching snd abdominals etc. what excercises and tasks should i avoid in the interim? i also take a low dose aspirin daily along with a multivitamin mineral, saw palmetto, ginseng, and chromium. are these ok with the condition and the new prescriptions?

hello! I got a little smaller aneurysm and my cardio told me to eliminate lifting weights (<20lb), no chest stretching, and no crazy exercises. Also, keep low fat diet and monitor my cholesterol and triglycerides. They did an echo and CT to measure it and will repeat i 6 months. I am wishing you the best!!
