Survival probability of a hepatitis patient with cirrhosis

An_257334 posted:
My grandmother had ascites and was resently diagnosed with Hepatitis C. According to the doctor the cirrhosis is advanced. My grandmother has no other symptoms besides the ascites and she started her treatment about a week ago. Can her hepatitis clear? Can she survive without a liver transplant? Is it necessary for her to take vaccination against Hepatitis A&B?

Okay.... what about the two other life expectancy questions? Is there a chance for her to get cured, or is she simply delaying the inevitable?
