Did Herat Transplantation really needed ??

My boyfriend is 36 years old.He was diagnosed CHF last January and right now in hospital, yesterday his cardiologist informed him that they find out his heart was damaged around 40% and his cardiologist suggest him to apply for heart transplantation.His blood pressure vary around 95-102/70-87 and his heart beats around 112-114.His weight around 265-270 lbs.His heights around 5"6'.He had Endoscopy last week and the colon is good condition, the docotr also got scanned his liver, kidney and all in good condition.I just want to know, it is necessary to have heart transplatantion ??.His medication before : Losartan Pottasium 50 mg, Allopurinol 300 mg, Spironolactone 25 mg, Furosemide 40 mg, Digoxin/Lanoxin 0.125 mg. Simvastatin 20 mg.And since he is in hospital, the cardiologist only give him Metropolol and Furosemide. His stomach and feet are swollen and the doctor give IV Furosemide now, around 80 mg I think.Please give us suggestion, did he really need Herat transplantation ??
