Hi Whisketron

its kind of a 'how long is a piece of string' kind of question - I know guys who drank more than me with no discernible long term effects and others who drank less than me who are dead.

I probably drank more than you did - certainly for the last decade - no steatorrhea, no apparent liver problems.

If you are not sure you trust your doctor then by all means get a second opinion but the livers pretty hardy - it can bounce back really well if we stop abusing it.

For this problem to be ongoing after 15 months maybe your docs right and it's not your lIver?

If you like, get a second opinion to ease your mind. But maybe your doctor is right and your liver is ok. I hope you can find some peace of mind.
