Dear friend , welcome to HCM.
you need not worry much if CT scan is normal and your doc feels everything is fine. minor disturbances like dizziness , fatigue etc. will resolve over time , variable about 2-3 weeks. it is a mormal course. pl. divert attention to other better things in life and thank that you are saved.
get well and keep posted on your progress.
