Cardiologist 's  Response
as you had recently underwent angioplasty , sress test TMT is not required with in span of 3 months .
We generally recomend TMT every year after angioplsaty .
But in your case comprehensive course and consultation with cardiac rehabilitation - understanding lifestyle changes and risk factor modification , diet and exercise changes is required .
Schedule your TMT after one year of angioplasty .
