4FWhat are the chances of survival if the Amyloidosis is in the heart, kidneys and liver. My mother-in-law is currently in the hospital for what we thought was a severely damaged heart. We found out today theat it is amyloidosis, And she has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure in June, '06. Is it too late for treatment? She is in Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ. She is 59 and has been showing the symptoms of this disease but the diagnosis was missed until now. Her cardiologist told us that she was in kidney failure and has a thickened, stiff heart.
