I can feel my liver swollen currently and am going through horrible withdrawls right now. All I can do is pace the floor. How can you go from just a fatty liver to cirrosis with 1 drink though like your Dr. said?
Your liver is not "Just" swollen and there is nothing normal about a "slight" jaundice. You came in here last month worried and we all advised you of your imminent danger. As I figured when I didn't see you posting, you went out and filled up again. Doc said things were ok so I guess they are. Happy Days back down at the saloon again. What me worry? You worry, it's only bilirubin.

Not everyone is meant to survive addiction or statistics would be much higher.
