Detailed Answer:

After going through the medical history and all true medical reports attached by you of your mother, I understand your concern for her health.

Am happy to tell you that both her ECG as well as stress echo reports are well with in normal limits. So the possibilities of having any significant coronary artery disease or heart disease is very minimal. So as of now she doesn’t require any cardiac medicine however she need to monitor her Blood Pressure regularly and if that stays high ( > 140/90 ) on two different readings then she needs to start antihypertensive medicines.

As of now there is nothing significant to be worried for. I hope this information will answer your query & relieve your worries for her health.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
