It depends on how good your EF is. Do you know this figure?
If the EF is 30 or less, then it is considered as heart failure because the heart is not able to fully meet the demands of the body. However with the right medication this can sometimes be improved upon. Even if the EF is between 40-50 it can sometimes be improved upon by taking the right medication and following the advice of the Cardiologist. With regards to longevity, there are many factors to take into account. Firstly, did you have an Angiogram to determine if you have any other blockages? these must be kept from worsening to save the remainder of the muscle. Lowering your risk for another heart attack is paramount. No smoking, healthy diet, avoiding emotional stress are the key elements for this. No one can give even a rough idea of how long your heart will last and it really is best to stop thinking in those terms. Live each day as it comes, lower your risk factors and stay positive. You will be looking back in years to come and thinking "has it been that long".
