Abnormal EKG readings. Possible old anteroseptal infarction. What do the readings indicate?

I have had abnormal ekg readings for the past three yes., I am 47 year old female. I went to a pre-op appt last week and they sent me to pcp for cardiac clearance due to abnormal ekg. My pcp did an additional ekg and got same abnormal results which say: abnormal p terminal force - possible left atrial abnormality and low r waves in anteroseptal leads - possible old anteroseptal infarction . I was sent to a cardiologists for an echo the same day and am still waiting for results. I am very nervous, can you tell me what the readings indicate?
