Congratulations on being cured of hepatitis C virus (HCV). As for whether your liver will heal from cirrhosis, your liver specialist will have to determine this. There is a range of possibilities, much of it depending on how advanced your cirrhosis is.

Some lucky individuals experience complete recovery, although it may take a couple of years. Others are less fortunate, and find themselves struggling with advanced cirrhosis and possibly liver cancer. They may even need liver transplantation.

Most people fall somewhere between these two extremes. They may still have cirrhosis, but they feel noticeably better and experience improved quality of life. However, because cirrhosis is a serious disease and a risk factor for liver cancer, they will still need regular medical monitoring.
