I'm surprised you never applied for citizenship in all those years.
Yep, better return or get advice from an immigration lawyer

I wouldn't risk it... but, if you have to:

H&C requires you have strong ties to Canada (home/property here, bank accounts, family, etc.).  It also requires that there will be some hardship somewhere along the line.  H&C cases are tough ones and take a long time to play out.
 
Have you thought about consulting an immigration lawyer.  Not to take your case necesarily - but to explain what your options are regarding your situation.

Hello,

I have been a permanent resident of Canada since 1967. Unfortunately, I was in an accident that has  left me with life time disabilities. Fortunatly, the symptoms can be treated with holistic medicines and treatments, but these are not covered by the government, and I can not afford the high costs. Through the aid of a family member, I have been undergoing said therapies in Thailand since 2008. I have only been in Canada for 4 0f the last 30 months, and I need at least a few more years of therapy.

My PR card expires on April 2114.


Can/will the government allow me to stay out of Canada -past the statutory limit- on humanitarian grounds?

I am starting to worry about this matter, so all information is greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Paul.
