Treatment for cirrhosis depends on the cause and extent of your liver damage. The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of scar tissue in the liver and to treat symptoms and complications of cirrhosis. You may need to be hospitalized if you have severe liver damage.
The liver damage done by cirrhosis generally can’t be undone. But if liver cirrhosis is diagnosed early and the cause is treated, further damage can be limited.
The life expectancy for advanced cirrhosis is six months to 2 years, depending on complications of cirrhosis. Your recovery depends on the type of cirrhosis you have, and if you stop drinking. Only 50 per cent of people with severe alcoholic cirrhosis survive for two years, and only 35 per cent survive five years.
The cost of liver cirrhosis treatment in India is USD 1,499.
