Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

Sorry to hear about your mom but with a liver working only 20% of normal, she could be having only a few months at hand.

Usually hepatitis C and B affected liver has a poor prognosis due to cirrhosis.

Moreover, her age is also a factor that indicates a relatively poorer prognosis.


I hope my answer has helped you.
