In brief: Variable

Severe myocarditis either improves quickly or results in death.
Other forms linger for months and eventually resolve. Chronic forms stabilize but never resolve.

In brief: It varies

Some patients will have normal heart function return within a few weeks.
Some have persistently decreased function. Lastly, some patients continue to deteriorate and may require consideration for heart transplantation.
