Question

Liver resected to remove secondary cancer 15 months ago after RFA (25% removed).  Liver has not regenerated - functioning at about 20% per tests.  Experiencing mild jaundice and low energy.  Due to some side effects, doctors decided to stop with liver treatment drugs temporarily.  What does the prognosis looks like for a case like this?

I hope that the liver can regenerate, especially if the HCV can be cured.
