Hi well come to HCm.
Within two weeks pt can have his normal activity with mild exercise like walking half
to one KM. But all this depends on your present conditions of heart like Echo report
will help the present status. Associated conditions like DM, Hbp, Any arrhthmias etc.
Driving will not give much stain you may start after taking permission from your Doctor.
