In brief: Indefinitely

It is impossible to predict how long any individual may survive most medical conditions, as there is too much variation in tolerance, genetics, associated factors, and the human spirit! i've never seen an "expiration date" on any patient and would question anyone who believes there are specific time frames for survival in any given person with any disease!
