    Is it possible to carry on a full and active life if you have one of your livers removed surgically.

    I'm a bit short of cash just now and was thinking of selling one to raise some readies. Otherwise there will be no apple in the near future.

    I believe that up to 80% of the liver can be removed with no immediate danger. As to a normal live afterwards, leave that to the experts to answer.

    That&#39;s a bit of a blow.

    What about one of my pancreases. Would I have to cut back on the sugary foods ?

    I wouldn&#39;t trust muchspl2&#39;s medical diagnosis over the internet, it can&#39;t be accurate.
