Liver: Normal ultrasound scan and blood results would make it very unlikely to have a diagnosis of cirrhosis.

No: If you donated blood a month ago, you should not be having pain. This would most likely be from phlebitis or irritation to the vein. I would have someone take a look at this or call the facility that drew the blood.

Varies: Most patients thrive and do well after liver transplant. However, surgical complications, recurrence of the disease in the new liver (depends on reason for transplant), rejection of the liver- which generally can be treated easily by medications, anti rejection medication related side effects and infections etc. Although these complications occur majority of patients have a better quality of life.

Too many to count: There isn't a simple answer to this question, because an elevated WBC is nonspecific, it can happen from just about any cause of inflammation or infection, or from other conditions of the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow.

A 30-year-old female asked:

When cirrhosis gets to stage 4 does it turn into liver cancer? Im confused..

Dr. Kevin Passer

No: Liver cirrhosis has to do with changes that happen to the liver usually over a long period and causes the liver to turn fibrous and to stop working. That creates a situation whereby blood trying to get thru the liver becomes backed up. Then, all havoc usually breaks loose. It also affects a person's ability to stay nourished. Liver cancer may occur in a liver with cirrhosis or it may not.
