More info needed: Perhaps you mean your sister has cirrhosis? Does she really have liver failure? Life expectancy depends on how damaged someone's liver is, and what types of complications they have had. It is hard to predict what might happen to any one person though. I hope your sister is going to a doctor who has experience in advanced liver disease. This person can help her understand what to expect.
