enlarge heart

At the age of 30 I had a stroke. During the time I was in the hospital they found an enlarge heart. I am still hear and kicking at the wonderful age of 51. In 1998 a implantabled defibillator was put in. My question is at this age could I still continue a preferbly long life?

The past medical problems are not very good for future predictions. Usually there is a change to a healthy diet, evolving medical therapy, etc.
