During this time the liver continues to function normally despite being damaged. Inflammation and fibrosis of the liver last for 10 to 20 years and at one stage numerous lumps form in the liver.Which is called liver cirrhosis. In this condition the function of the liver decreases and blood circulation is obstructed. People with cirrhosis of the liver can lead a relatively normal life despite their physical weakness.

One of the complications of liver cirrhosis is watery stomach, watery legs, brain dysfunction, kidney problems, chronic jaundice, vomiting, etc. If these complications occur, it can be called Decompensated Liver Cirrhosis or the last stage of liver cirrhosis.
