2D eco conclusion (feb 20 2017):

The "CONCENTRIC LEFT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY" is often the result of a prolonged period of hyperntension and not a result of the MI.

The "SEGMENTAL WALL MOTION ABNORMALITY ALONG RIGHT CORONARY ARTERY TERRITORY WITH SYSTOLIC DYSFUNCTION" is probalby a result of the MI.
The heart muscle is damaged from the MI in the region where the MI took place (at the position of the right coronary artery).  

An "EJECTION FRACTION 53%" is still within the normal range, so the pumping ability of your heart is still good enough for a normal active life.

"MITRAL VALVE SCLEROSIS" is something that you probably had already before your MI. It can obstruc/restrict the flow of blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle. It can be mild or more severe. Your report does not say.

Thank You very much Ger57. Really appreciate it.
So the MITRAL VALVE SCLEROSIS should be my concern for now right? what will be the restrictions in my physical activities having this?
You have to discuss that with your cardiologist. Probably there will be no restrictions in physical activity.

About the sclerosis: As long as it does not compromise the pumping function of the heart too much, it will be left untreated (but probably monitored 1x/yr)

Your focus should lie on a healthy lifestyle. Take your medication, eat a healthy diet and exercise as allowed by your cardiologist.
No smoking and/or excessive drinking.

I.m.o.:
The lab test results are NOT too bad. Your prospects are certainly NOT gloomy.
You can still have a long and happy life.

Take care,
Ger
