In brief: Yes!
Liver transplants are performed with the intention of significantly improving the duration and quality of life for a patient with chronic liver disease.
Improvements in patient selection, operative technique, and post-transplant medications mean you can anticipate an excellent recovery provided you stick to the guidelines set out by your transplant physicians.
