    It does regrow, but only if you give it time to regrow, aka don't binge drink for two months.

    A healthy liver is perfectly capable of regrowing up to half if need be, though this ability may be compensated by alcohol abuse or cancers. The functioning cells that make up liver tissue are pleuripotent stem cells meaning that they can be reproduced and change to assume the required role.

    I was a live liver donor. They took half of my liver and it regrew within three months. Only organ in the body that regenerates. Duh.

    Technically true in cases of healthy livers. Alcohol especially damages the liver so that's how people end up with fatty livers and cirrosis...once you damage it, of course it doesn't grow back.

    Before people call each other a dumbass make sure u know what u are talking about it is sad to see people make fools of them selves. 236 cancers effect a lot of stuff so a diesce of the liver it is safe to assume that the cells there would in fact be bathleing that instead of rebuilding jackass

    And 12:56 thats when you need a liver transplat. And its not half your liver, its more like 1/8 to 1/10 depending on how bad the liver is damaged.
