Welcome to health care magic
Dear Patient, if you have been refraining from alcohol for the last 5 years, i hope your liver disease will have improved by now, and these symptoms of bloating, pain in right upper abdomen, pain radiating to the middle of the back and belching in the absence of jaundice, vomiting with blood in vomitus, black coloured stools, fluid in abdomen and swelling over body , are very unlikily due to liver disease ,rather your symptoms may be due to acid peptic disease, ball bladder stones or irritable bowel syndrome , so you consult a gastroenterologist who will get your USG abdomen ,LFT and other necessary tests done and will treate you accordingly, you should try to avoid excessive spices, tea, coffee and smoking
wish you to get well soon
