In brief: Fibrosis

Fibrosis stage is more important than inflammation grade.

In brief: Depends

Depends on cause: viral (and which type), toxic, autoimmune, etc.
Depends on duration of disease, timing of exposure, e.g. Exposed 3 years ago or 45 years ago; depends on age, other health factors; depends on degree of "fibrosis"-scarring. Get more info from the doc to help in therapy decisions.
