Heart size reduction but reduced EF

Posted By Nanci on April 19, 1999 at 15:42:21
My last x-ray and echocardiogram results showed a markedly lower heart size -- not too much above normal -- but a considerably lower ejection fraction -- from the 40s to the 20s. I am still in Class 1. My doctor was unable to explain the reasons for the change. I would be grateful for any input -- feel like I'm on a yo-yo and getting very depressed.
