I am a 37 year old male. Been a heavy drinker for around 15 years. I got admitted to hospital for a mallory wies tear (due to retching the night before). Stayed in hospital for about 3 days. Had an appointment to attend for ultrasound on liver. Results showed “coarse liver on USS”. Few weeks later had an appointment with consultant to discuss results. He said “its best to keep off alcohol for around 6 months, and then Stick to the recommended allowance after that”. My question is, if the USS showed “coarse liver”, then why haven’t they advised me to stop drinking forever? Also my bloods (LFT) were all fine at the time of scan.
