Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Angina is not something you can wait for to get relief. Especially in complicated situation as yours. You need to avoid eating heavy meals, walking after meals, don't walk against cold breeze or don't walk uphill. Keep GTN (Nitroglycerine) tablet with you and as soon as you get chest discomfort, chest pain, breathlessness you should put one tablet under the tongue and go immediately to Hospital.
