Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help yoiu?
User :   Ok, please just answer my questions as best as you can. Ok, so I have this friend of mine (he is somewhat mentally handicapped, not serverly, but he does have a problem) who is 14 years old. Anyways, recently he found out that advil helps his muscle cramps. For a week he took 7 advils a day before his parents found out. They took him to the hospital and found out his liver is in very bad condition. I am simply wonderingâ?¦â?¦.. 1. Will he need a liver transplant? 2. If he does, how long can he last for until itâ??s his turn on the list? 3. If he does need a transplant, how long will he be in the hospital for? (IN the hospital, not recovering.)
