Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
Unfortunately this is very serious codnitions with poor prognosis and nothing cant be done to prevent the worst. it is hard to predict how long can she live but i am sure that doctor will give all to prevent significant hemorrhage and pain.
Wish you good health. Regards
