In my experience if the drive is going to die completely it will do so
without much warning.  The bad sectors you are experiencing are more like
a cancer (dying R/W heads, bad disk surface, one or more head crashes in
the past, etc.) and will continue to spread.  The less you use the disk
the better, as each write access will likely corrupt more sectors.
