In brief: Depends but yes
What is the cause of the liver damage (virus, immune system, toxins, drugs)? Is the damage ongoing (alcohol, etc.
)? In most cases, the liver has an amazing capacity to repair itself and reverse scar tissue that has formed. A person can donate half their liver to another person and they will both usually be ok. Treat your liver well and it will treat you well.
