In brief: Yes

There are all degrees of CHF from very mild to severe.
Also we have a number of treatments ranging from medicines to heart transplant. It is quite variable and somewhat unpredictable how long someone can live with heart failure. In some cases, even severe heart failure can miraculously improve.

In brief: YES!!!!

Treatment for heart failure has come a long way! if a patient with congestive heart failure follows their treatments they can live a very long time.
In some cases the heart failure can even recover to normal!
