Also, it was never stated that he gets to live forever. I don't know where you're getting that from, it was never stated in the movie or in any of the sidematerials. Living forever is also not a good thing as you'll always watch your loved ones die, which is always pure anguish. You'll either not be close to anyone (which sounds more like Setsuna quite frankly, though probably less so with his new persona) or you'll keep making new loved ones/frieneds and then watching them die over and over again. Living forever is not pure bliss.
I think it's safe to say that Setsuna is immortal, his no longer remotely human, he hasn't aged in 50 years. His body isn't flesh and blood, his the closest thing we have seen to a god like being in the history of Gundam.
