My husband has Hep C and Cirrhosis. Yes, people can lead a full and healthy life, with cirrhosis, if it is in the
beginning stage and the
liver is still working well. As the liver becomes more scarred, people can have more health concerns and may have more symptoms that can be managed for the most part with diet,medications, and care. If the liver continues to get more scarring, people get progressively more sick and may require hospitalization, procedures, or even a transplant.
