If the entire lobe is broken down and does not contain active liver cells, it will not regenerate. Fortunately, the Liver has two lobes and it is regenerating liver tissue that gives cirrhotic/damaged Livers a nodular appearance on ultrasound. Your liver cannot regenerate if it is under attack from toxins or disease.
