    Hi Wendy. I also have dilated cardiomyopathy due to chemo. My EF went up from 20s to 50s within a year of going on meds. Unfortunately my dr then said I could go off the meds and several years later I was back down to 20s. I would just encourage you to fine a good cardiologist you communicate well with. The meds they have now are great and can make a huge difference. You can live a long, good life! Glad you're here. Keep us updated on your progress.
