I am sorry to hear about your husband's illness. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion, in this forum, than that provided by the doctors who have examined and treated him. Wish you both good health!

It is always difficult to make predictions with regard to life expectancy. What you describe is a very serious heart problem with a poor outlook. However, there are many things that can be done to keep him comfortable. I assume the possibility of heart transplant has been discussed. Please plan a detailed discussion with your husband’s doctor.
