Hello, Sorry you are passing through a tough time. A diagnosis of stage 4 pulmonary with secondary pulmonary hypertension is not quite an easy problem to be going through. In my experience, some patients had remission in the period of 8-10 years, but no one can tell you for sure. Alongside prednisolone, I used sildenafil to manage the HTAP and there was quite a significant improvement. Hope you get better soon. Warm regards
