adamt: I would have to say that answer is best given by your Dr. Please don't overdo and push yourself too hard. I would certainly check with your Dr. on this one.

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.

I have the exact same results as Ernst's wife. The more I work out the better I feel. I have the same with the feet getting cold, do some squats and push-ups and feet get warm again and I feel great. I waited three months before lifting weights, only did physical therapy before starting two week after procedure. PT was just resistance training with bands and yoga ball, sit ups and bridges and a lot of stretching.

I now do a 55 minute, non-stop workout once a week with a personal trainer and then ride a stationary bike the rest of the week. Then do sit ups and bridges and push ups at home everyday.

See below from a post by Cheerleader, Hypovolemia and CCSVI:


"I hope to bring this avenue of discussion to the doctors. Perhaps aftercare needs to include additional hydration, salt intake, maybe even intravenous fluids--all to keep blood levels adequate. Inactivity and remaining in the supine position increase hypovolemia--therefore, movement, exercise and upright activities would encourage blood flow and blood volume."

Very interesting to read.
