Yes, I was also just diagnosed in early January......my EF was 25%. My FIRST MISTAKE was reading all of the negative statistics on the internet!
I asked my cardio dr about all of these report and findings and he said that most of these statistics are very "dated" and they usually describe the worse case scenerio. As long as she's seeing a good Cardiologist, specializing in heart failure....that's half the battle. And, since it's been caught, it CAN be treated with medications. I have another echo done in a month......but I feel wonderful!
My only drawback so far is that I can probably never have a child. But, know that she can live with this a long time......!!!!
