Hi all, I posted tis post in mid January, this year:
Hi, early last year due to a lot of personal problems I started daily drinking between 10-12 pints of lager a day starting about mid February 2017. I had an ultrasound done in May 2017 which showed a fatty liver, so I stopped drinking at the end of July and started eating right and exercising. I got a fibroscan done on the 26th of October 2017 by a Hepatologist and the reading was 3.9 Kpa and he said no damage, but Within the last 2 months I have had a couple of major traumas, which has sent me on a 8 week binge of 10-12 lagers a day (very irresponsible I know). Could this have caused me to develop cirrhosis in this time? I have stopped now. Thanks in advance for any help.
Since this post I have been really stupid and thoughtless. My Mum and the person I relied on most died in mid February and I felt completely and unbearably lost and went back on the drink 10-12 pints a night to numb the pain as I was so depressed, I know I have let her down but with my history of depression i felt unable to cope. I have stopped now 5 days in but that makes nearly 6 months of daily drinking and I am now really worried that I have done some serious damage to my liver, I am so annoyed as I have let my Mum down and after a good Fibroscan reading of 3.9 Kpa last October 2017 I feel like I've thrown it all away and am really worried I've now got cirrhosis. Any help or feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
