Survival rate for ejection fraction of 40

What is the average survival rate for someone with an ejection fraction rate of 40? A doctor told my husband he may only have 2 years to live. He's only 52 years old. Last year he had a heart attack and a triple by-pass, which caused moderate heart damage in the form of a crease. His only risk factors were stress and genetics. He is now on a vegan diet, with the exception of eating fish.

I read a report which analysed patients in the netherlands having received bypass surgery and had a low EF. Going by these results, I find your Doctor a bit off track. Here are the statistics for an EF of 35-50
After 1 year, 9 out of 10 survived
After 5 years, 8 out of 10 survived
After 10 years, 6 out of 10 survived

Have they suggested an Echo every year?

Fortunately Drs. make mistakes.

I suffered a HA 5 and half years ago who left me with a 23-25% of EF.

I am still alive and making a quite normal life.
