Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     In a given individual, 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 / other co-morbidities like Diabetes, Dyslipidemia / response to medicines ...     
Generally, it should be good...
The treating doctor alone can suggest based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
