Hi Hiranya;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the ECG is normal and does not show any changes of problem then it is surely normal ;no need to worry.As for the leftward axis it is a position of the axis of heart which is left or right in different persons and is not a problem or disease.So you cancontinue the exercise as usual .Still if you feel you can consult a Cardiologist for opinion and personal satisfaction.
Thanks

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
