What are the chances of liver failure or liver disease if I had hepatitis?

Which hepatitis?

Abnormal_liver_tests
Chronic Hep B and Hep C can create liver failure, and the latter is the most common cause for liver transplant in the U.S. today. Both are potentially treatable and curable, so get checked by a gastroenterologist ASAP.

If you're on the liver transplant list for liver failure what are the chances you can recover by your self?

Unlikely

Liver
only people with end stage liver diseases will be on the list , if they have reversible disease will not be on liver transplantation list. This is one transplant living donor can give part of liver ( unlike kidney you loose one )

Dr. David Earle answered:

Might it be that a live-donor liver transplant happen in someone with acute liver failure?

Maybe

Transplant
It would depend on the cause, but most cases of acute liver failure are infectious, and self limited, so II doubt the patient would be a candidate. Check with a liver transplant program to find out more.

Yes

Liver_failure
Living donor liver transplantation provides a liver for someone that has chronic or acute end-stage liver disease. There is often time to work up the donor over weeks and go through a thoughtful process in chronic liver disease, however in acute fulminant liver failure, there is life threatening complications measured in days, the whole process is sped up but should never compromise donor safety

Will liver failure or liver disease shrink your testicles even if I stop drinking if so what are the symptoms for that disease?

See below

No_alcoholic_beverages
the chronic drinking lowers testosterone levels & thus causes testes to shrink. Suggest AA & detox program to get off alcohol. Damage may be permanent, but perhaps testosterone replacement can help. Ask urologist/endocrinologist. But must stop drinking to prevent further damage & side effects.
