Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You may need to repeat the ECHOcardiogram - to look for thrombus (clot).
You may need a Holter or an Event monitor - to look for arrhythmia
Get yourself examined again / the treating doctor will decide depending on his assessment..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
