His ECG and Echocardiogram report is normal so what can be done should he start the medicine or not.
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. Very good question. Read and understood your history that your father in law was sufferin g from hypertension for which he was taking medicines. Now that he is off the medicines for such a long time without any problem, normal BP, ECG and all, just have a regular charting of the blood pressure and see if this continues to be normal or no. Certainly if it rises, consult the Cardiologist.
