Allison, I also want to welcome you to the forum. Your SS disability expertise can be helpful to others on here. Meanwhile, I take it that your husband is on a transplant list, but you are wondering how long he has to wait for transplant? That depends on the availability of a donor.
The question of How Long? is impossible to answer, as liver disease is such an individual thing. It is best not to even focus on that, but to do what needs to be done now and to enjoy the time you have left, as much as possible...though I understand that's rather difficult when the patient is so sick.
Please do remember to take some time for yourself, as PG suggested. And again, a big welcome to our family.
