Q:

If you would kindly tell me how does it feel….when a person is only using 20% of their heart. Can they survive?

A:

Some people do very well; others may have severe heart failure and ultimately need a heart transplant. The first question to answer, is there any congestive heart failure with trouble btreathing, swollen legs abdomen and liver? It all depends on symptoms that are present.
