Re: How long can a person live with Parkinsons??
Parkinson's fortunately is a disease you can live with. The life expectancy of a person with PD vs. a person without PD is only six months differernce. People with PD don't die of PD, they normally succomb to falls, pneumonia, or chocking.
The best you can do is insure you are going to the BEST MOVEMENTS DISORDER NEUROLOGIST you can find whom you feel is competant, capable, and caring. You may have to go to several before you find the right one, but once you do, IT IS A GREAT HELP.
Good luck with your father,
