prognosis after myocarditis infection with severe congestive heart failure
15 months ago i had severe heart failure, possibly due to a virus. i was 49 years old, my ejection factor was 10% and i spent 2 months in hospital. i was assessed for a heart transplant, but eventually started a slow recovery on medication. my ejection factor is now 50% and i have a small asd and mitral regurgitation. i have improved a lot, but still have cardiomyopathy. please do you have any idea of my prognosis and life expectancy. i take ramapril 10mg, bisoprolol 7.5mg,spironolactone 25mg and furosemide 40mg.

Generally the fact that you have made such a nice improvement portends a good prognosis over the long run.  Stay on your meds and stay in communication with your doctors.
