Understand your predicament. But please post this query in the appropriate forum, you will get a better feedback.
For liver transplant, along with the liver function tests, the general systemic status also needs to be looked. You should be able to withstand the surgery and the anesthesia. You can even enroll in a support program even before your surgery, so that any concerns or doubts can be clarified. Your doctor may be able to guide you regarding this.
