In brief: Much too long

Nobody has ever been known to carry gonorrhea as long as 5 years.
Almost all cases are self cured by the immune system within a few months. No complications are likely in absence of symptoms like discharge, painful urination, etc. Gonorrhea is almost never life threatening.
