Sometimes it can: take a while to get just the right medication regimen figured out. Don't give up hope. Make sure that you let your providers know how you are feeling.

A number: It's the number of persons in a certain demographic (all kansans, all scleroderma patients) out of maybe 100, 000 that die during a particular time period, perhaps one year, or over a span of years. For example, in 1800, the death rate for newborns was about 450 out of 1000 during the first five years.

What is the death rate for paget's disease?

Around 1%: Paget's disease of the bone (and i assume you bone, not nipple) in about 1% of cases gives rise to aggressive cancers. Let's hope this does not happen to you. A few patients with paget's died as a result of high-output heart failure from the arteries connecting directly with veins in the bone; hopefully with today's treatment this will not happen. Good luck.

Life expectancy: We usually think in terms of life expectancy rather than death rate. For the average 90yo, s/he can expect to live another 4-5 years (http://www.socialsecurity.gov/oact/population/longevity.html) but that is of course affected by current health, lifestyle & family history.
