What The Life Expectancy Of A Person With 25% Heart Funtion And Stage Four Copd

life expectancy for a person with emphazema, Severe COPD, and a 25% heart function 63 year old. Smoker for 50 years

Answer

Hello there... This is a difficult question to answer, since predicting life expectancy with any accuracy would need to include factors based not just on physical condition. The power of the human will can be very strong in some people.

However, with a person who has reached the deteriorated stage you describe, you can expect that death is not too far off. Whether that means a matter of weeks or months or perhaps even longer is hard to say.

I'm sorry I can't give you more definitive information. Also, your parent's doctor might have more of a prediction for you, though again, it's an inexact science.

Take care,

Kathi
