About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Liver conditions usually refers to the likely outcome of Liver conditions. The prognosis of Liver conditions may include the duration of Liver conditions, chances of complications of Liver conditions, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Liver conditions, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Liver conditions. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
