Exercise is essential, whether using your own body weight or stepping it up a bit by using more resistance, so to speak. I'm referring to the use of weights/dumbbells.
Once your doctor approves weight lifting for you, there is no need to delay. Weight lifting:
• Improves bone density
• Fights fat; (How? Lean muscle mass decreases with age, if you don't add strength training to your routine then 'fat happens').
• Lowers the risk of diabetes
• Improves heart health
• Helps to prevent/reduce back pain
• Improves balance
Instead of remaining the same, why not try to improve?
Be a better you!
