Welcome to both of you. Care m, it would be best if you start your own thread so that others will see it and reply to you. You can do this by clicking on New Topic instead of Reply.
Doctors generally won't estimate how long someone has left, as there are many variable factors and each case is very individual. Liver patients do need some protein, but abstain from beef. You can also use non-animal forms like beans. Soybeans are high in protein and shelled edamame is now available in the frozen section. I use it in stir fries.
If both of you do a search of the older posts for diet, this subject has been addressed many times. The older posts also contain a lot of information. It is important for us to know what type of liver disease a patient has, in order to respond correctly (hep C, AIH, alcoholic cirrhosis?) Also, check out the folder at the top of the Hepatitis Forum page, Hepatitis Resources. There is a lot of info in there.
