I have no idea what the life expectancy is and in all honesty I don't wish to know, My attitude is that I intend to live forever (so far so good) I am unwilling to comment on recent scientific progress as so often press releases are interpreted in a newsworthy manner and are usually premature in a fruition date. Make sure your professional adviser is up to date and rely on his experience.

The last time I looked that up was 15 years ago. It made me realize to take medical advise and medication serious. It depends how long you had it (without knowing), how serious your condition is (invasive or lung bleeding), what's left of your lungs etc. And it depends on finding the right doctor with knowledge of this disease, or willing to consult (or refer to) specialists who do have that information.

I am not knowing about the life and expectancy of everyone who catches this condition I know that the people that I was sick with at Stanford have died since the first time I was sick. I do believe it depends on the level in which they caught the condition if it is caught early on and you're able to alter your life to avoid the mold and further lung irritation , you will do well if they have not caught the condition before your lungs scar that is where things become more challenging.

Depends on the persons age, which specific aspergillosis disease it is and if the relevant treatment that person is on is helping.

If very sick and treatment not working it can be fatal
