Hi welcome to healthcaremagic Forum

It is better to avoid alcohol at least for up to 6 months..
alcohol will delay wound healing, binge drinking will lead to respiratory arrest.. hence good to stop it for time being..

My dad has Crohn s Disease and early signs of non-alcoholic cirrhosis. He just got a CT scan and was told he has fluid around his stomach as well as thickening of the stomach wall and thickening of the small intestine wall. He has a gastero-ocposy on Monday to go down his throat to check things out. We are wondering what this could mean, what could be the cause and what is the treatment. My dad is here with me. Thank you so much for your opinion. It is much appreciated.
