In brief: 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
