Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: hello and thank you for sending the question. It is very difficult to predict what type of damage has happened or what you might expect in the future. We can say that it is very important that you discontinue alcohol consumption until a doctor can fully assess your liver. if discontinuation of alcohol is very difficult for you you can talk about this with your doctor and he might provide you with some medication to help make this whole process much easier. I think if you really focus on your general health and try to eliminate things which can potentially limit your quality-of-life this will ultimately improve your future. I hope this has been helpful. I am available if you have additional questions regarding this matter. Dr. G

Brief Answer: Followup Detailed Answer: This could easily be just fatty liver. I don't want you to become worried in this situation. One day at a time and one test at a time and your doctors will get to the bottom of this. Most likely it is not serious but is something that should be investigated.
