If you posted your question over in the Liver Disorders Community, there is someone there who may be able to help you further named Hector...he has a wealth of liver information, and can provide you with many liver details and answer questions regarding your options.
He is also on the Cirrhosis of the Liver Community and the Hepatitis C Community...if you post on all three, you'll probably catch him...not sure if he's on this site or not.
There may also be ones here in Gastro that can help you as well, just saying he's the guy you want to have explain the liver stuff about.
