Hey all, So I am doin' my best to take all of your recommendations.
Navy, I got my Xanax dose to .5mg and decided to not be afraid to take my percocet or Valium if NEEDED. Use what works. Thx!
Ivy, Thanks for the input as well and everyone else who had something to say.

I do feel better and heart rate resting averages from 66-84 or 90-105 when i eat or after I eat. So im guessing thats normal
It does go to 120-125 if im movin in bed or stretching in bed.

I am working on getting out of bed in a few days but You all are great and recommended to take it easy and relax in bed. And Im fine with that.

Question is, I want to workout my heart so it's ready..

Anyone have any recommendations, workouts in bed, exercises that im not doing?

whats a good way to get the heart a good exercise to get use to it when i start being mobile.

if you follow me, im basically tryin to improve my OVERALL heart rate in a healthy way.
Thanks so much for all that support. Don't know what I'd do without you guys.

wooohooo!!! here's some more ((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))) if you need them...
When I can't always be up and about...if you can, leg lifts and stretches...you know, lay on one side, lift leg...that stuff...not sure about all else...just walk around the bed too...a step or so...whatever feels good...

Just know when you start up exercising, just start slow...even if you ran marathons before..doesn't mean you have to now...

You are sounding so much better already :)
Honestly do not believe that there really is any excercise that can really
excercise your heart whilst still in bed but as you say that your heart beat increases whilst you move around  then I think that it is getting some low impact excercise.
 
Like with anything, little and often is the trick, slowly building up. As mentioned, just basic stretches, arm/leg raises are good,flexing your feet, 'drawing' circles with your feet they are all good for keeping your circulation(and heart) going. Another good stretch(especially for the back) is to lay flat,  draw your feet up to your bottom and let (both) your kness drop to one side,bring them back up and then let them drop to the other. Requires a bit more effort but not too excessive.
 
Happy workout :)

Thanks Vixen, Yes im thankful i have youth on my side. Being young. I can exercise in bed and hopefully recover the same. Tomorrow is my goal to get out and move back in the recliner for a few days. This will mean getting up 5-6 times a day to get to the bathroom.

This will be good exercise. I am eating along with my TPN so i think this is helping.

I have been in and out of my recliner for 2 weeks but I had a dizzy spell and 150+ hear rate 3 days ago using the bathroom.. (Which is probably NOTHING) but it bothers me.. So I am going to attempt again to spend a few days reclined and mobile.

Best is to try right? Takes time.

just do a few excercises like leg lifts arm streches as already mentioned\\ you can put something akin to a light weight on feet /ankles to get more out of it BUT only if you are comfy with it
do you remember when the teachers use to have us lay on back n arch using arms n legs lifting torso n butt up
that might be good too

hv i said im proud of you n you do sound so so much better yeah keep up the progress
ty for letting us know

Don't you just love reclining chairs :) I had quite a large op 5 years back and spent 3 weeks in mine-it was bliss!!
Just remember that when you are getting out of bed or your chair, do it oh so slowly(appreciate this may be difficult if you just have to get to the loo, like now!!) but the slower you do it the less likely you are to get dizzy-sit up, pause, legs on ground pause, pause some more and then make your move. Getting up too quickly diverts the blood from your brain and you become dizzy(not good)
 
Crohns may be a mission but it's got nothing against a 22 year old man on a mission!!

Isometrics? I am not sure if I got the spelling correctly.
