It depends if they have stop smoking or stopped the exposure to what ever caused it.

It also depends on their age and other life style factors.

I have heard of people living for 25 years with Emphysema and C O P D -but they quit smoking and listened to the doctor.

Well...no one can predict another's lifespan. Fortunately, today we have so many treatments available! My Father has been diagnosed with this condition for years and thanks to GOD and the numerous medicines science has provided him, he functions rather well. If you or a loved one need the best copd specialist in the world, pm me...for my Father has him:) Best of luck!

IYou cannot put a time on someones life that has copd. I have copd and the most important thing is taking care of yourself. Overweight is definitely not good. Exercising and moving as much as you can is great therapy . I Have an inhaler called spirava that seems to be helping me a lot. I also use a steroid inhaler Advair . Good Luck and God Bless.

It depends on how early it is diagnosed and how well you follow Dr. orders. First thing QUIT SMOKING, & STAY AWAY FROM SECOND HAND SMOKE. C.O.P.D. is caused 95% by tobaco smoke. It is treatable but it is a Disease and is not curable.

It depends on if the medicines work on it. Only the Lord knows how long you will live.

Dr Dave P
If caught early and a person gives up smoking and all tobacco products, the lungs have trendency to purge and cleanse themselves - increasing life expectancy. But this usually isn't the case - is it?

The chronic case has a life expectancy of three to five years - without a lung transplant. With the transplant, well, your guess is as good as mine, I guess it's how old, and how healthy the person is to begin with and how well the tranplant takes - but I'd guess, no less than 3 years and possible up 15 years.

The main point for the chronic patient is total abstinance from tobacco. Failure will cut the live expectancy in 1/2 to 1/3 so if the person continue to some he/she's got about a year left without the transplant.

If they fail to quit - I don''t think they deserve the transplant, but who am I to say, still with transplant and continued smoking, I'd give 'em 4-6 yrs under optimal conditions.
