In brief: Depends on size
See cdc.Gov AAA fact sheet.
Make sure you keep up with your follow up to make sure your AAA is not enlarging.

In brief: Many years
The likelihood that an abdominal aortic aneurysm will rupture is mostly related to how large it is.
Most aneurysms develop very slowly over a number of years. Once it hits a critical size however, the risk of rupture outweigh the risks or surgery and therefore surgical repair should be performed.
