Not on the Internet: One does not ask strangers on the internet who have no access to your physical situation, lab and other test results for permission to do anything. You ask these specific questions of the physician caring for you. The one who knows you best. Not strangers on the internet.

Should be: If you feel fine, have no chest pressure or shortness of breath, are able to do regular exercise and are able to lie flat without any difficulty there should be no risk to you especially with this modest travel. In fact, those echo findings in isolation are not serious but should be followed over time and definitely evaluated immediately if you develop the above mentioned symptoms.
