As a current medical student I would STRONGLY ADVISE that you listen to your doctors. What is more important, a 5kg gain in your snatch, or being alive. I know that sounds cheeky but I'm being genuinely serious. After any significant cardiac event it would be terribly ill-advised to do any strenuous exercise. After a heart attack there has been cell tissue death which is permanent. Cardiac muscle does not regenerate. There has been irreversible damage to your heart and by extension its function. Your doctors would tell you the same exact thing. As someone who has been personally affected by heart disease, please do not take this lightly, and you should count your blessings that you were able to survive even one MI. As fun as weightlifting may be, it is almost certainly not worth the risks that you are thinking about taking.
