I was told today that my heart is at 65% what does that really mean
You don't state what the 65% is in context to- is it an echocardiogram? If so, 65% could be the ejection fraction, which is the percent of blood ejected from the left ventricle when the heart beats. This is a normal reading, indicating that systolic heart failure is not present. Can't say much more as you don't provide enough information. Report back here with specific test results if necessary.
