Alcoholic hepatitis of the liver, on dialysis. Any advice?

Hi, my name is Michael Young, I am 20 years old and nearly 2 weeks ago I was taken into hospital with alcoholic hepatitis of the liver, which quickly caused my kidneys to fail. I was in intensive care for a week on dialysis and have since been recovering on the regular ward. I understand what has happened so far due to internet research. I am living in Spain so there is a bit of a language barrier; don't get me wrong the Spanish health car system is amazing and I owe my life to them! But I am struggling to get information on the future for myself, such as diet, exercise, life expectancy and such. I'm under no illusion this will change my life completely but would like a bit more information on how. Thank you.

Hi
firstly alcoholic liver disease to be diagnosed at 20 yrs is not good prognosis if alcohol consumption is not stopped. The dialysis done was for the acute kidney failure9which I am asuming as no investigations are mentioned in your question) which is a supportive treatment till the kidneys recover from injury due to your illness. Plese folow up with your doctor without fail
