welcome to healthcaremagic

it is implied that you are under a cardiologist's/physicians treatment if you had recent ht attack

and you should follow the advice of treating doctor regarding your continued treatment for ht attack

the doctor has definitely asked for relevant tests to know the coronary arteries status and further management

regarding light duties doctor has most probably guided you to type of works you can do .the type of work can be recommended for working place now it is the employer's decision that matters
