Thank you for writing in HCM.
The said gentleman has 3 problems all three of which are incapacitating and without much treatment options.A delicate balance has to be achieved in order to reverse the changes. Again the prognosis depends upon the severity of the disease processes. the lung problem is due to the bedridden state.
Overall the prognosis in the said case is not satifactory.
