Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
it will probably come back if this was grade 3 and there was infiltration of surrounding structures. But it is hard to predict how long will she live. if there is no any sign of recurence at this point,then this is very good sign and she may live even several years. She just need frequent follow up.
Wish you good health. Regards
