Can you do this after triple bypass?

My husband had a triple bypass three years ago. He told me the dr said no exercising afterwards. Told him to only walk 5 mins a day. For three years he has sat in a chair because the dr told him to take it easy. I tried to tell him the dr meant not to try doing anything right away like he used to do.

For three years he has sat in a chair because the dr told him to take it easy. I tried to tell him the dr meant not to try doing anything right away like he used to do. I go to a gym a couple times a week (I am a senior) and see many people working out that had the same operation about the same time he did. When we try to tell him how important exercise is he just gets mad. He thinks you only live 5 yrs after bypass. Has anyone ever dealt with this kind of a problem? Thanks for any help.
