Re: wandering

Don't think there's an absolute answer to your question. Do you have swelling or other signs of congestive heart failure?

I have a defibrillator because my ejection fraction is in the 25% range. It's been there for years, yet I live a normal life without obvious CHF symptoms.

I had a stress cardiac PET scan last week, but haven't heard back from the cardiologist on what it shows.

I have heard of individuals whose EF is 10%. But evidently that gets pretty dicey, because that (as I understand it) is probably heart transplant range.
