someone intentionally overdosed on about 50 tylenol pm, but then hours later went to the hospital where they said it was too far along to pump his stomach. he had to stay for a week drinking some sulfur smelling medicine. i'm trying to figure out the chances of his liver being healthy after this, and what the long term effects are for him
the liver damage is acute and it will completely recover functionally. but the reserve function may be reduced. this will not be any problem but may become an issue if he again consumes suchh tablets again. so functionally his liver is fine,
