Yes, exercise as much as you can no mater what it is; if you get winded, stop and wait as long as necessary and begin again. This goes for chores as well, don't over do it.

Yes. Take it slowly and try to go a little farther each day. Also , if the weather is a problem you can walk in a mall shopping center if one is close to you and you still drive.

Exercise is very important and you will see a difference .

Ask your doctor about a pulmonary rehab too.

I walk every day and if it is too hot or windy I walk around the house.

I use a walker when I go walking , it has a seat and if I get tired I can push off to the side and sit for a few minutes. Almost never have to do that now and I can walk 2 miles .

Breathe easy and rest if needed.

I walk 1/4 mile at a brisk walk from spring til fall.If I get winded, then I stop and sit for a minute or 2, then keep going. My insurance covers planet fitness. I want to use the weights to help strengthen my ankle from the surgery, and my arms.
