Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
Your father is suffering from liver cirhosis, lately diagnised as liver fibrosis, due to alcoholism, LFT all beyond upper level, is there any chance of extension of his life.
It depends upon the general condition of the patient, if he has no diabetis, hypertension, anaemia, kidney disease, and if the patient if physically fit the doctors can try liver transplantation, in case some donor of the healthy is is accepting to donate, from your own family.
These days many new medicines are coming for the recovery of the liver, in allopathy and other systems of medicines.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
