Chest wall injury

I went through an atrial septum defect operation some years ago. I had a quarrel with a shit-eating body builder some weeks ago and he knocked me on the chest. I have felt heart pain and asthma since then. I think the physical impact of his strike has torn one or two bands of the ones which connect the protective layer of my heart to the sternum or the breastbone.Please inform me of the specific solution.

You certainly could have sustained an injury, but where I cannot judge.

You can read more here:

You probably should have some tests that might include an EKG, Chest X-ray, cardiac ECHO and/or a chest CT.

Hope this helps,
Dr T
