Heya I am an ex-alcholic 3-4 years( I am 25) 10 pints a night, a whopping amount of alcohol I know 10 months sober now. I have only ever had one symptom of liver problems which I steatorhhea with the associated weight loss which has been a constant.
I've been wait on a diagnose on the cause of this since I have been sober, I had lft run 3 times the 1st 2 weeks after quiting drinking, I have the ultrasound about a month after quiting all clear and a ct scan, although they were focusing on a kidney blockage but my sister(used to be a Dr) has told me that when they do an abdominal ct they do a complete report?
I try to stay positive but I find it impossible to believe that I haven't drank my liver into oblivion. They are moving very slow on the steatorhhea front but are going full speed with the previously mentioned kidney blockage. They want to do surgery to correct it and I am game but I fear what will happen if I have they surgery with the undiagnosed cirrhosis.
Sorry for the rant, I just hard because you have to wait so long to talk to a doctor or get test and I know they are so overwhelmed
