There is no answer to the question, I have 34% lung function so I am much better off than you, I have remained the same for 6 years so I am not getting worse.
I know people who are as low as 10% and have remained the same for a number of years.
You do need to take good care of yourself, clean smoke free air, good food but keep the weight stable, flu shots etc, talk it through with your doctor.

Ask your doctor. Even then he may not presume to tell you.

First off, I am sorry to hear you have COPD. No doctor can give you a definitive time left on earth because they just don't know. Many people live a long long time with stats like yours. You need to stop smoking ( if you haven't already), take your medicines as directed, exercise, and most importantly, keep away from people who are sick or places in which you can find sick people. That means if you have to go to a grocery store, make sure you use the wipes provided to wipe the grocery cart. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer and use it often. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid crowded places like casinos, restaurants, movie theaters, etc. They are usually full of germs and those germs can kill someone with lung issues like you have. Make sure you get a flu and pneumonia vaccination. Make sure anyone who comes to visit you is not ill with a cold or flu. If they are, don't let them in your home. Finally, get yourself into pulmonary rehab. They will teach you how to utilize the lung tissue you have left. If you take care of yourself you could live a very long time. Good luck.
