Default Dilemma for IMG.any suggestion,plz?

Hello everyone,plz let me share my situation,if kindly you've time.I am an IMG.YOG 2010.Honestly,I've developed,somehow, an intense desire to take usmle.but recently i have entered to pursue a residency MD course in cardiology in my country's a renowned institute through a very competitive exam.It will be 2019 when i'll have done with MD(& that time age will be 31 yrs).I know a bit that getting cardiology residency in USA is very tough,but i'll be happy with IM or FM in community programs.Visa is another obstacle,as very few programs sponsor few H1b.You may think that being cardiologist in home country is better,but i have a dream to practice medicine in USA.I am more or less confident in getting good usmle steps scores if i try hard.What do u think guys?should i quit cardiology training and take usmle soon without wasting time to avoid the stigma of being old grad or will there be any chance in getting IM or FM residency later that time around 2019?I fear,after quiting cardiology training if i won't get residency in US.Also taking usmle now is difficult for me for sort of family and financial problems.any suggestion what i should do,from you guys will be greatly appreciated.thanks a lot in advance.
