Difficulty in running, exercise, feel exhausted. Have RBB, had lung infection. Done with echocardiogram

Hi I was just diagnosed with a RBB in October 2012. I have hard time running or over exerting mysef. In the last month I have been completely exhausted and done very little physicl exersize. I have 50 lbs I need to loose nd hve been eating very healthy and clean. This morning my heart rate was 54. Is this all normal with a RBB. I have an echocardiogram done it came back very well. But because of no insurance I havn't had a tredmill stress test yet. I plan to get one as soon as I get home in Alaska. I currently have had a lung infection for about 2 weeks so I have been layed up.

RBB on EKG is a normal finding without underlying cardiac D also suggested by N ECHO
.Recent lung infection can make one prone to develop reduced lung capacity especially on exertion so you will need to take it easy till you recover fully.
Good diet with lot of protein & multivitamins will help.
I suggest you must get treadmill test done in order to rule out possibility of underlying cardiac ischaemia ( low blood supple to heart muscle)
