1 doctor agrees
In brief: Median is 5.5 yrs
That being said, population statistics can't be applied to individuals.
How well the surgery went, the match characteristics, how well oh avoid infection, your fitness prior to transplant, how well you tolerate the transplant regimen, etc all effect your quality of life and longevity.
