Response from Dr. Young

Sorry to hear about your friend.

Life expectancy depends on a lot of specific details; however, if your friend has access to experienced healthcare and medications and (when necessary) is willing and able to adhere to medications, I would forcast the potential for a long and healthy life.

Thanks for your interest in your friend's health; such involvment is a factor in survival. BY
