Not a need answer fast and not asking for medical advice, but just a general observation.
It seems to me that when someone has a major medical problem like cancer, heart disease, a stroke, or something similar that you may hear/read that they “recover” but 10 or 15 years later it kills them.
As I typed that I realize that there are breast cancer survivors lasting longer than that, etc.
Perhaps my ignorance in my thoughts will help someone in the know understand my question better.
Does a health problem like this eventually kill you? Take Bill Clinton, just for example. Is there a chance that his heart will be healed 100% and he will die at 110 from a gunshot by a jealous husband? Or will his particular heart illness do him in, either next year or when he’s 80?
And I would guess that Dick Cheney will almost certainly, short of getting hit by a bus tomorrow, die from his heart ailment.
I guess I’m doing a poor job of articulating my point. Sure, we will all die, but is a major diagnosis a death sentence, not by date, but by method?
