    I know the Liver is one organ that can regenerate itself, so when someone have a Liver Transplant they only receive a small protion of the Donor Liver and not long it grown to its normal self, but not sure on how she is going with her's as it have ruptured badly.

    How awful for you all - your poor sister-in-law.
    Sorry I've no experience of damaged livers
    However a young friend of our (15) had a spontaneous collapsed lung - he made a full recovery in a couple of days.
    I do know the liver is an amazing organ that can partially regenerate and we can easiliy live with part of our liver missing.

    Just had a text now and was told, her Liver was twice the size it should be and ripped, her bowl exploded inside so they rushed her into emergency OR. They had to take the bowel away, tried to save her liver, she is back in IC on life support now fighting for her life, they have now given her 50/50 chance of survival. :001_unsure: Her organs are starting to fail now.
