Hi I'm 34 and had a very serious drink problem which ended up with me suffering ruptured varices and I was vomiting blood. I was rushed to hospital and thank god after 2 very tough and painful weeks I was allowed to leave. If I ever drank again it would result in death.
2 years later after tests, scans, endoscopys and a biopsy I've not touched a drop. I now have savings, got promoted at work got my confidence back to drive again and life couldn't be better.
I went for a check up yesterday and the doctor suggested I use the new fibroscan machine. After a very nervous wait she gave me my results. I was told the highest and worst score you can get is 75. My result is 75! She said I'm suffering with terminal liver disease. She said my liver over the next few months/years will have many issues like cancer, more ruptured varices, other organ failure and I will need a transplant. I'm absolutely devastated. I haven't confided in anyone as I know I've basically done it to myself. It's not a case of if, it's when and what will go wrong. I'm revaluating my life and any long term life goals are no longer a dream.
