Clearly, an operation where your liver is removed and replaced by a healthy liver, is major surgery and a very serious situation. However, if there are no additional complications, around 75% of people survive the operation and live for another five years or so. Sometimes the transplanted liver can fail, or the original disease may return.

On the other hand, a significant proportion of people live for another 10-20 years. Survival rates after liver transplant. Your chances of a successful liver transplant and long-term survival depend on the particular situation.
