Hi,Shivani thanks for query.Normally after 4-6 weeks everything should be normal.Please talk to your cardiologist for this.In routine follow up ecg and echo will decide what amount of strain you can take.Activity in this period also depends on your preexisting illnesses like hypertension,diabetes etc.Regular exercise and diet control is must in this period.So please discuss this with your treating doctor,he is best person who can after examination can give you suggestion.
