It depends on what your EKG looks like. I cannot judge that from here and it doesn’t make sense to speculate! It is possible to have an MI w/o symptoms, or one caused by an injury to an artery, such as after an accident.
In your case, based on the results of the 10 year risk analysis, you are at a very low risk. In any case, whether you had an MI before or not, you need an evaluation about your heart function and presence/absence of coronary artery disease. Everything else is speculation and your surgeon needs facts!
By the way, you are doing so well on diet & exercise, why not continue that and see how far it can get you?
A gastric bypass has major potential and long term complications and while often very effective, should be reserved for those who are unable/unwilling to do so!
Hope this helps,
