my answer is less of an R answer than a literature answer:
John P. Klein and Melvin L. Moeschberger devote section 4.5 in their
book "Survival Analysis" (Springer, starting on page 117 in the 2nd
edition) to the topic: "Point and Interval Estimates of the Mean and
Median Survival Time".
I hope this helps,
