that really depends on the person and how well they take care of themselves

If you do very slow and careful rehab, excellent diet, a few years, at least, are possible.

Statistically, I don't know the typical survival.

The people I have known with bad hearts (things like quadruple bypasses & several heart attacks) all seem to live at least 5 years after that.

my brother in law has lived years with 2 open heart operations and a pacemaker.not much heart left.so it is all up to God

My dad had his first heart attack at 40. They have put in stints, angioplasty He has had a quadruple bypass. He is now 72.

There is really no set rule. They had told my dad at 40 he had maybe 10 years. The docs were wrong. He also continued to drink and smoke for several years after his first heart attack. He didn't follow any of the Drs orders. It is a miracle that he is still going.

Do the best you can and see what happens. I do think the rehab helps. My dad has walked pretty consistently. I think that has helped him a lot.
