In brief: Variable
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.
