Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Kiran Kumar's  Response

As you have a heart ailment, any exertion can put more load on the heart and cause symptoms

So mild to moderate exertion is ok
Mastrubation occasionally will not cause any problem.
If you develop any shortness of breath or chest pain, then you must stop.

Thanks and Regards

Dr Kiran
