In brief: Wow, that depends...

...on a lot of factors--age, co-morbidities, closeness of match between donor and recipient, rejection/graft-versus-host, underlying cause of liver failure, compliance with post-transplant protocols and follow-ups, indiscretion with intake of alcohol/tobacco/illicit drugs.
You get the idea--- it's not a question that warrants a blanket response!
