CHF - Long Term?
Is there any way to determine the length of life after a diagnosis of CHF? I was diagnosed almost three years ago. I am told that I am in stage three - ejection 70%, fluid in lungs after strenous exercise, fatigue, angina - even at rest, and a pletheora of other symptoms. I still try to walk daily, but am concerned about my prognosis? Any ideas would be appreciated.

well, a Cardiologist MAY be able to give an estimation based on the patients current condition, but it depends on how bad they are. It is far easier for them to estimate longevity for patients who are in a seriously bad condition, rather than someone who is just over the borderline for CHF. If your EF is 70%, why would this be classed as CHF? 70% is a fantastic EF. Do you know what your stroke volume is?
Normal  EF is 50-75%.
