Why when I have sex after I'm done I feel severe chest pain with a lot of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing and very fast HR for few minuts?

In brief: Angina

Until proven otherwise.
In the above mentioned circumstances your symptoms should be treated seriously. I see that you already had a heart cath and I wonder what the results are. Other possibilities are arrhythmias or exercise induced asthma, among others. Definitely worth discussing your symptoms with your cardiologist.

Agree.A PFO may in absence of other cardiac disease cause this-ask your MD to consider a TEE with Valsalva and agitated contrast injection

Two great answers. Also, deconditioning can be a part of it. If that's the case, like any exercise, doing more is better! Of course, like any form of exercise with your history, get advice on how much, how hard, and how often to exercise (any kind of exercise, including sex).
