My ejection fraction is 25%. Am i normal?

I recently was hospitalized as I caught a virus which attacked my heart and my ejection fraction was down to 5%. When I left the hospital my ejection fraction was 25%. My question is, am I able to go back to work in this condition? My doctor told me not to go back to work until April 2011 which is three months after the virus.

At ejection fraction of 25% is not advisable to work as you will get easily exhausted ;it should be atleast more than 40% so that you can work without much trouble although you may not be able to do any heavy work.As your ejection fraction was reduced due to a virus & now you are recovering & even the heart has improved this proves that the process can be reversed & probably your heart will still improve.Please repeat a 2D-ECHO around April end then if the ejection fraction is fine & your treating doctor says you can resume your work.
