Yes: You'll probably lose your medical as an airline pilot, and i'd be reluctant to have you as my neurosurgeon, but you'll be surprised how fit you may still be. Cirrhosis can over be partially or sometimes completely reversed and i'd urge you that if the cause is found and a treatment is possible, that you avail yourself of it.
