The long term implications depend on the type of the infection contracted. Diet restriction needs to be followed strictly in case of jaundice until sometime after the levels come down to normal. This does not affect the future life. Healing of the tissue is very good for liver. If she is already protected against Hepatitis B, prognosis is good, since this is the type with most future complications. Please discuss with her physician for further advice. Take care.
