High Ejection Fraction Score Today

Eighteen months after a heart attack due to a 100% blocked left artery and two stents put in, I took an echocardiogram last week. The result was an ejection fraction (EF) score of 77.

I have been eating super healthy, exercising daily, and taking many medications. I've lost ten pounds, and I am now at my goal weight. My question is: why isn't my heart doctor worried that I may have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy since my EF is so high? He was saying that my 77 is wonderful.

Which is it? Good news or bad news?
