I am a trainer and am about to take on a post op brain aneurysm client. He had a 11 hour surgery 4 years ago and the aneurysm ruptured during the procedure. He has been set back to a 3rd grade level. He isn't accustomed to exercising regularly. He is a 54 year old man who is 5'11" and 225lbs.
I am planning on limiting or cutting out weight bearing activities in the beginning and focusing on activities like walking. Most of the research I've been reading doesn't specifically discuss exercise and this condition but do say that in order to prevent future problems it is important to decrease weight and increase cardiovascular health while being careful strain and stress.
Is there any advice or other information that you would consider to be pertinent before I begin working with this person?
