Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If pulmonary hypertension is severe , thats why you have been advised long term oxygen therapy, use of diuretics, medicine to help and alleviate the local cause of lungs as well as secondary causes of heart and supportively treated. Exact life span can not be provided as it depends on many factors.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
