Zumba after LAD stent

Prior to having a stent placed in my LAD from 90% blockage, I was doing Zumba 6 days a week for a minimum of 1 hour.  How soon can I start back to my regular schedule of Zumba or when can I start Zumba on a less intense schedule?  I am 45, do not smoke and I am not overweight.  It has been 3 weeks and I feel great.  What is the risk in starting back now?

I'd think this a question best asked of your doctor.  Normally, your groin wound should be healed, but I'm betting you will be asked to start slowly.

Yes, Flycaster is right. I was told I could return to normal activities as tolerated.  I would assume you would know your limits. I returned to work just 5 days after having 3 stents placed in my RCA. But I am an accountant running a company from the owrner's home.  Almost like working from home. My walking and exercising took a while longer to get back to. I knew my body wasn't quite ready for all of that at first.  Take care and take it one step at a time. Be thankful for the procedure.  Ally
