In 2010 had another mi and was told to stop working. Two weeks ago I had chest pain and had three stents in graph from 1998. What is a reasonable life expectancy with these problems

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     It is difficult to assess life expectancy - it depends upon ejection fraction of heart / valves’ integrity and function / wall of the chambers / arrhythmia, their nature and frequency / renal function / response to medicines .     Personal habits, family history, or co-morbidities also influence the outcome...There is hope and you have a long way to go... The treating doctor alone can suggest based on his assessment of the situation.
Further deterioration can be prevented or postponed by aggressive management.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
