My husband was diagnosed with cirrhosis in Nov 18. He did not give up drinking, if anything he drank more. He was drinking just lager but stepped it up to vodka and lager. In Feb 2020 I went with him to see the liver consultant who said my husband was stage 4 liver disease and gave an approximation of 2 years life expectancy if he didn’t give up.
My husband checked himself into The Priory for 6 days and I am told by him that he stopped drinking. The Priory told him his liver would repair after 1 month. He had a scan on Friday (4 weeks after leaving The Priory) and was told his liver has a bit of scarring but nothing bad, no mention of cirrhosis . He has now started drinking again but only lager (the strong stuff).
Can this be true? I know the liver is an amazing organ
He is 61 and has been drinking heavily and smoking heavily for 40 Years
