Can a person survive without a liver?

No, unlike kidneys a person can’t survive without his/her liver. However, he/she can survive with its only part as it regrows after it gets treated. For instance, if a person’s liver is 75% damaged, then there are treatments available such as liver transplant, with which the doctors can regenerate its remaining parts. In liver transplant cases, the donor is always a living one.

Can you cut off part of your liver?

If your liver is healthy and you’re donating a part of it to the needy one. Then, the liver of both donors and recipients regenerates to its expected size three months post the liver transplant surgery.


Can liver failure be reversed?

If a person stops consuming alcoholic beverages and fibrosis, then it can be reversed and resolved within 6 weeks. However, fibrosis and cirrhosis cannot be reversed at any cost.
