A member asked:

How long can someone live with chirrosis of the liver without a transplant?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: This largely depends on how advanced the cirrhosis is, as well as what originally caused the cirrhosis. If the insult that caused the cirrhosis no longer exists (for example, someone with alcoholic cirrhosis who stopped drinking), you could probably go a long time without needing a transplant. However, if the liver continues to be damaged, a transplant may become necessary.
