As the above answerers said, it depends on the individual and the cause of the problem, the extent to which the ejection fraction is impaired, the comorbidities (other conditions affecting the patient), the patient's age, etc.. Some causes of congestive heart failure, such as viral or peripartum cardiomyopathy or alcoholic cardiomyopathy, can reverse partially or completely. The patient should follow the physician's advice, learn as much as he or she can about his condition, and keep abreast of the best therapies for the condition to facilitate a dialogue with the people providing the medical care.
