30% is no fun. With broken ribs, it's even harder to do a lot of exercise.
My coronary arteries are good - after my last angiogram, I was told that my coronary arteries were clear -- like a teenager's.

I just started a new medication - I don't know how much it costs - it's been on the market for about a month.

My valves are okay -- an echo last month didn't reveal any valvular issues, and my prosthetic is working fine.

I don't know what - if anything - can bring that EF back up. Maybe the medication will either raise it or give me more energy in spite of it.

I don't know about cardiac rehab - if they'll let me in.

My electrocardiologist doesn't seem to want to dig into the causes of the continuing drop in EF.
