Doctors are sometimes great a telling you what you "need" to do, but not telling you the "how." Go back or at least call his/her office to request a diet and exercise program. In doing so, you will know "for certain" what is appropriate for You!

Walking is the best. You can also look into low impact water exercises.

You do whatever exercises the doctor cleared you to do!

That said, you cannot out-exercise a bad diet. Weight loss is more about what and how much you eat. You need to focus more on that to lose those 45 pounds.
