if your liver is shot
Nov 11, 2007

hi my name is amber and im just wondering my brother has hepititas a,b,c and his liver is shot and he doesnt want to take medicine and he is still drinkig alochol how long does he possibly have to live. if you could give an estimate that would be great if you dont no exactly how long. sincerly amber

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am sorry but I can't answer this question because there is a big difference between cirrhosis and decompensated cirrhosis and I am not sure what stage he is. The ongoing drinking will certainly accelerate your brother's advancing liver failure.
