In October 2021, doctors recommended that he have a liver transplant, and if he fails to do so, his life expectancy is estimated to be less than 12 months. He also informed his brothers and sisters to find suitable donors.

【The liver has failed, so it can't function properly, and the stomach presents like a 7-month of pregnancy】
Roslan was seen at a government clinic in June 2019 for coughing up blood and was subsequently referred to the hospital for testing. After that he was diagnosed as a hepatitis C patient with diabetes, the condition was not serious, just taking medication and regular follow-up visits is enough.
In May 2021, Roslan returned to the clinic as usual and was scheduled for an ultrasound scan, which reported signs of oedema in his lymph around his tummy. Then he was referred to University of Malaya Medical Centre, and then in August, Roslan's stomach began to swell, and then his feet were swollen and causing him to walk difficultly. After a detailed diagnosis by the doctor, it was found that his liver had failed, so it could not function properly, and his stomach presents like a pregnant woman who had been pregnant for 7 months.
