My mom had an echo test and the report describes ischemic cardiomyopathy and mild lvsd. What is her present condition regarding the above report. Pls help.

The echo report cannot accurately tell whether the patient is well or unwell. If she can walk around she is ok. If she can climb stairs easily she is doing very well, and if she is breathless often on minor exertion or when lying down, she is not well.
