Dear Berni:
Generally, you can start exercising 4-6 weeks after your symptoms have stopped. Please be aware that you should begin exercising at a low intensity as your fitness level will be significantly decreased, due to the strain your cardiovascular system received from your illness.

I advise you to consult a physician as to when he/ she feels you can start an exercise program.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
