In brief: Depends

COPD is progressive, histiocytosis is more indolent.
Pulm rehab and bronchodilator rx can prolong life, but consideration for lung transplant should be under consideration for progressive disease. The life span of advanced COPD with hystiocytosis is around 5-6 yr.

In brief: Unanswerable

That will depend on each individual.
There is no time line or science on which any kind of answer can be based. There are just too many variables.
