i was diagnosed with liver disease (cirrhosis of the liver) at age 15, from another disease called Cystic Fibrosis. I dont have liver disease from drinking at all. But anyways, I'm 18 now and also have Portal hypertention from liver disease, which means i have high blood pressure in my portal vein, so my veins can burst at any time. But neways, does anybody else this young have this too? Or does anybody know how long the live expectancy for this is? until a liver transplant is nessessary, that is.
