A long time!: No one knows for sure, but your prospects are certainly good! With today's medicstions, close monitoring of your heart disease, and healthy living (no smoking, eating right, exercise) you can live a happy life for many many years! Talk with your cardiologist about ongoing reassessment of your EF. If it remains depressed below 35% chronically then you may increase your chances with a defibrillator
