Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, it doesn't seem to be an urgent concern but keeping an eye on liver functions tests and may need to repeat three monthly with a fat free diet and avoiding alcohol.

Bright color stool isn't usually from a liver cause but if stool frequency is more than usual or associated with cramps or any other symptoms like fever etc get a gastroenterologist review and stool analysis done.

If any signs of infection appear may need probiotics or even antibiotics. Repeating ultrasound liver to keep an eye on any signs of cirrhosis or liver damage is important as well. Drink adequate amount of water and avoid junk, spicy, heavy meals.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards
