Normal: Assume that you will live out your years with the same chance as any of your friends of reaching 100. A majority of kidneys respected for cancer result in cure. Liver disease is largely reversible when the cause is found and addressed. If you can live clean and know the secret that the liver loves it when you exercise, then oil forward to many more good years.
