There is a reason a subpoena compels your appearance in court. Something does not seem right as trials don't normally take 10 years to get to testimony...you probably ought to plan on showing up...
There should be the name of the attorney for the party that is subpoenaing you on the subpoena. Call that person and explain the problem. They may be able to get a continuance, excuse your appearance, or make other arrangements.
