Hi I'm not only new to this site, but I'm kinda newly diagnosed with CHF. BAck in may 2010 when I was diagnosed my CHF my % was 40 now it's at 24% and I don't know what to expect. I know that ef % is the % of ur heart function, but how low is like death? My Doc said in my last visit (1/28/11) we need to start thinking about a bypass. I'm 40 yrs old and have a 16 month old. I'm working on changing my diet and my Doc has me on a boat load of meds already. He added 2 more meds yesterday. I don't understand the percentages and how I'll feel at what %. I'm functionally with some limitations right now, but my Doc wants me to sleep a lot and NO EXCERCISE. Thats kinda hard with a 16 month old. Anything u can tell me I'd appreciate. Thanks in advance.
