In brief: Life expectancy

Life expectancy is multifactorial and thus with the little information provided, it's impossible to really discuss survival.
But if your grandmother has carotid artery blockages and is having mini-strokes, she may be at high risk for an actual stroke if the blockages are not addressed. Please see a board-certified vascular surgeon.

She certainly has risks factors which could decrease her life span but many other factors are in play & only a guesstimate may be made even after thorough evaluation.
