Why after heart attack and stent problem while breathing. ( Shortness of Breath )

I am male 58. I had no BP and no diabetes and normal weight and normal life style. 4 months back I had anzina pain in chest and was admitted to hospital in emergency. Found that I had heart attack. LAD was 100 % block and another one was 50 %. They fixed two stents in my arteries. I was feeling ok after that. At present I am on the follwing madication. Prax A 150, Rosivasu 10, Metocard XL 25mg.

Since last month I am feeling shortness in breath. My heart pumping is about 35-40 %. Somtimes some pain in left shoulder and pain around heart. According to doctor everything is fine as it was after stanting. I do not feel comfortable. Can not walk fast . I  have started walking for 35-40 minutes daily.

What should I do to overcome this issue. Most of the time feels heaviness in cheast.

It can take a while to heal from a procedure like that- and if you heart is pumping about 35-40% that might cause some shortness of breath, but it never hurts to go back into the doctor or go for a second opinion from someone else when you feel something is off.
