I think u continue medicines as advised for 2 weeks.. Once ur Cardiologist feels u r stable enough for angiography get ur angiography done.... In most cases angiography will be normal but its always better to get it once.. It will take time for ur heart to improve so that ur ejection fraction increases... Follow ur Cardiologists advice... Eecp as per me has no role at present..
