So I have fatty liver that's progressed to NASH. Does this mean I'm dying? Does this diagnosis mean it will progress to cirrhosis and without a transplant I will die? I'm 54 and I have no idea what my prognosis is. I've changed my diet and completely stopped drinking and I won't take any pain meds. But I'm not sure how realistic it is to think about living another 30 to 40 years without ever even eating unhealthy. I don't know how extensive my scarring is or what stage I'm at, but assuming it's bad, based on the doctor's comments, what kind of life expentancy do I have? Am I sick or not? Should apply for permanent disability? Will I progressively deteriorate? I've really gotten virtually no explanation.
