Thanks for you question.

You need to go for a Viability Scan, which will show if there is any living heart tissue (reversible myocardial damage) amenable to treatment.

In the meanwhile make sure that you have following medications.

1- Aspirin
2- Clopidogrel
3- Statins for lipid lowering (atorvastatin, simvastatin, rosuvastatin etc)
4- ACE inhibitor (like lisinopril, ramipril etc).

Join a cardiac rehabilitation programe for exercise, stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol, control hypertension and diabetes and loose weight if obese.

hope that answers your question.
