My husband was admitted to hospital at the end of May with pneumonia, it was then that we found out he had a left bundle branch block that the dr said was unfixable. They had him on the cardiology floor for 4 days. He went to see the cardiologist who said he wanted a nuclear treadmill stress test done, then he had to wear a holter monitor for 48 hrs, then he had a muga scan. The muga scan said his ejection fraction was 48 percent and they want to see him again in 6 months. Ok, so I get it that just the right electrical impulse is working. So I don't understand why he has to go back in 6 months. So is this something that changes quickly? He is 68 and has never smoked, been a healthy weight, eats healthy (in fact better than I do and I teach bootcamp and p90 x etc 6 days a week) however he does not exercise. With a decreased ef does that mean a shortened life span? I guess I just want some idea of all this?
