Diagnosed with cirrhosis in 2009 taking lactulose & Lasix what is my prognosis without liver transplant?

Cirrhosis

Liver
You should be on spironolactone than Lasix. Talk to your doctor about this. The prognosis depends on each patient. Some people live long without requiring liver transplant but some people need it sooner.

what is the prognosis for cirrhosis of the liver if the patient stops drinking and stops taking lipitor?

Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
Stopping alcohol is essential for those who want to maintain their health. Drinking and stopping Lipitor will continue to deteriorate. Lipitor is not to be taken if you have active liver disease. The prognosis depends on how much alcohol was used for how long, and how much damage was done to the liver.

I'm 22 months out liver transplant due to "cryptogenic cirrhosis" now have Stage 3 fibrosis with bridging. NO HepC. Lupus. Progression/Prognosis?

Discuss with doc

Transplant
Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

What is the prognosis for advanced liver cirrhosis and congestive heart failure due to alcoholic cardiomyopathy, EF 10, asceties, kidney impairment?

Poor

Heart_failure
Not good I'm afraid. The cardiac output alone is reaching a point of non-compatibility with life.

diagnosed with acute alcohol induced hepatitis and early cirrhosis denied a liver transplant Bleeding and infection are risks. On dialysis--prognosis?

Still drinking?

Acute liver injury due to alcohol use is unlikely to have a good outcome unless abstinence occurs. That is the only chance of surviving. The kidney injury may improve - insufficient info to respond. Top priority now is alcohol abuse treatment. - for long term prognosis.

How bad is stage 4 liver cirrhosis and what is the life expectancy?

Stage 4=cirrhosis

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
The prognosis of cirrhosis is highly variable since it is influenced by a number of factors, including etiology, severity, presence of complications, and comorbid diseases. Scoring systems are available to give you an idea of life expectancy but are far from exact. You should discuss this with your doctor.

Dr. Adam Front answered:

What would the life expectancy for advanced cirrhosis of the liver be?

It depends

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
There are a lot of factors involved. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed, your doctor may be able to give you an estimate, but it is only that and depends on how advanced, what treatments are possible and how the person's body responds to them. It can be upwards of a year in some cases (without transplant or other treatment), or so critical that it can be weeks to months. Ask YOUR doctor.
