Need careful exam: It's not enough to know the result of a lab test. One needs the results of a careful, comprehensive assessment of your situation. Usually this is provided by an internist, experienced family physician or cardiologist.

No.: No, resumption of normal troponin levels does not mean the heart tissue is restored. If the heart muscle is damaged during a heart attack, scar tissue will form from the damaged tissue. Medications such as ace inhibitors can help the remodeling/healing process of the remaining tissue after a heart attack which can be beneficial. The scar tissue remains.
