Liver cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis suggests that the liver is scarred beyond repair. It will not recover, but you can live with it if you do not develop complications related to portal hypertension or encephalopathy. Ultimately, liver transplantation fixes the problem but not without risk. You should discuss your options with your hepatologist.

Liver transplant : You need to be assessed by a transplant specialist, cleared by your insurance provider, undergo a full evaluation and be presented at a listing conference.

Liver transplant: Exclusively if you can stop, demonstrate sobriety with complete abstinence for six months and complete intensive outpatient therapy. Ultimately, all transplant programs have a listing committee that oversees this process.
