Anyone know anything about Cirrhosis, gall stones or anemia? (XP)

I've been googling and searching and though there is a wealth of information out there, I'm not finding any of it the least bit helpful at this point.

I need to know about specific symptoms at different stages of Cirrhosis of the liver. I also need to know what it means if after being given multiple units of blood and plasma over the course of multiple days, a person still has anemia severe enough that they can't have surgery.

I can't figure out a specific prognosis for someone whose liver isn't functioning, has severe anemia that's not getting better despite treatment. My thoughts are that if a person has anemia that is unresponsive to treatment along with a non-functioning liver then they are in a dire situation, but I can't find information that helps back this up or refute this.
