It depends on the severity of the liver and pancreas damages. If the damages are very severe, say, it causes liver failure, patients are unlikely to survive.
Highly unlikely. Involvement of both liver and pancreas is a harbinger of poor prognosis in patients with sepsis.
My best friend was diagnosed with sepsis just before graduation. It is said in the early stages, I remember that she's in the hospital for two days and was having antibiotics. And she wanted to attend graduation ceremony, so the doctors let her go since she’s feeling better. Then she treated the infection at home with antibiotics and totally recovered in just a week.
