Hi,thanks for query.Dear Hitesh,all the reports are not normal.Diabetes,blood pressure everything needs strict control.Your doctor has advised opening of blood vessel of heart due to blockage.Please understand that depening upon the location and extent of blockage this is needed.Please also understand that even after opening,poor control of both diabetes and blood pressure can lead to this again.please discuss this issues with your cardiologist before going ahead.Cost varies with city, and hospital.
wishing him good health.
