In brief: It depends

Why do you have cardiomyopathy? It can be from a diseased heart due to lack of oxygen (blocked arteries), it can happen as a side affects of some drugs, it can happen as the result of some type of infection even a cold type virus.
So why it happened, and how severe it is, will help to determine the likelyhood, or unlikelyhood of there being a progression to heart failure.
