Jaundice infection, completely cured, had stopped non-veg food. Safe to eat sea food?

Hi, almost 1-half years back I had Jaundice and completely cured in 2 months. During that period I just avoided Non-veg food completely. 6 months back I have started taking Non-veg items like chicken and red meat. I am still avoiding Sea food. Please let me know how long I need to avoid sea food like fish, prawns etc.

It is safe to eat seafood at this time, UNLESS you have cirrhosis of the liver. Why did you have jaundice? if it was just a viral infection that self resolved, or large amounts of alcohol, or a biliary stone, medication induced, etc.. then you will be fine eating seafood.
On the other hand, if you have chronic liver disease, and have been told you have or may have cirrhosis, eating raw seafood places you at risk of infections, which can be very severe. If you are not sure, then check with your primary doctor to see if you indeed have chronic liver disease or not.
