Cirrhosis, chances for liver disease after consuming alcohol

I am 61 years old, I had liver cirrhosis 5 years ago due to alcoholism . I no longer have that problem and am completely fine now and don t consume alcohol. But is there a chance of still developing any liver disease although I take complete care of my diet and abstain from alcohol completely. I was told by the doctors that if there is liver damage in the future then it might be fatal. Please advise as I am worries as to how long will I be able to live.

Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I have read your query in detail. I understand your concern.

Liver cirrhosis, if you have can get decompensated and can cause problem.

I advise you to get your Ultrasound, LFT, Endoscopy regularly.

If any problem is there, you might require liver transplant.

However, if reports are normal, and you are aymptomatic, then you don't require any transplant from my point of view at age of 61 years.

This is my best advice for you with the available details, if you have any further query, please ask us.
Stay Healthy
