My wife had her angioplasty half a year ago, with exellent results. About 3 weeks after PTA she started exercises. Firt one hour walkings, then little by little jogging, about 7 km trips.
About month ago she noticed that MS symptoms came back, little by little.. and her hands/feets became cold. We decided to test weight lifting, with basic movements (squats, becn-press, etc). The incredible thing: after some hours of training her movements came much better and hands/feet were warm again.
A 1,5 week later again same situation, MS symptoms showed.. and again after weight lifting same, good results. At the moment her condition is very, very good. Lots of energy and exercises are now routine, 2-3 times a week (big movements: squats, bencpress, large back muscles, 3-4 sets x 10-15 reps).
There comes big central vein pressure when lifting weights (for example squat), which widens the veins. Im not sure if this is the main reason for her good results. but we certainly continue this.
