If it is at 0% functionality your body can no longer function to keep you alive. Your kidneys will shut down after your liver, there will be no way to filter out toxins in your body. Your liver can also repair itself though this takes a good period of time.

I am well on my way into liver failure. Those of us in this position will NOT survive without a liver transplant, & not enuff people sign the donor part of their driver's license for there to be enuff organs to go around for all of those in need. We will swell up with the toxins that our bodies will be unable to eliminate without a functioning liver, those toxins will poison our bodies and we will die, just like anyone else with the same problem. The liver also controls your blood's ability to clot when there's an injury, so those of us with liver issues bleed a lot heavier/longer than you do if you cut yourself, TJBATES. Its a rough way to go.......
When my mother was diagnosed with liver cancer, I read a lot of medical books. Almost all of them said 7 months. She was diagnosed the end of August and died in March. So my answer to you is seven months. God Bless.
What is the liver issue? Cirrhosis? Cancer? My father was diagnosed with cirrhosis 2 years ago due to years of alcohol abuse. He seriously was at deaths door. He hasn't had a drink since that time and he is doing ok!
