Exercise after stent

There was a study about how in addition to giving patients information about exercise after pci,  people who were given what was described as being given positive affirmation did much better physically and emotionally after a year.
The positive affirmation consisted of bimonthly phone calls and little gifts.
Here is the URL of the study

Three weeks after my third stent, because of a phone call I made to one of the doctors involved in this I was encouraged to walk.  I had tried to get more information from the cardiologist who referred me for the stent about exercise during and recovery and did not get any information.  I received no literature whatsoever about exercise after stenting.  I bought a Timex heart rate monitor so that when I went out walking I could get some idea about what was happening with my heart.
What sort of information about exercise have other people gotten after a heart procedure?

Lots here. In fact, I have been admitted to cardiac rehab twice, each lasts several weeks.

I also was referred to physical rehab after several of my stents as well, and believe physical exercise after stents is standard procedure.
