Can you have chocolates after recovery from jaundice ?

My age is 27, Before 5 months, I was detected for Jaundice , at that time, Billurubin level was 5. Last 2 months Blood report suggests that Billurubin level has come down to normal. Can I start taking chocolates? My friend has brought some US chocolates, I have taken one, will it create any chance to increase my Billurubin level. Can I start having a normal food? Or still do I need to follow the food restrictions. Now a days I am feeling very weak as well. Earlier me weight was 77 and now it has reduced to 64. What kind of a diet can I follow to rebuild my lost weight. My Height is 5 6 . Also, I am a non-vegetarian, I havent taken any non-veg foods for past 5 months. When can I start having these foods...:) Also, USG abdomen study suggested that I am having a mild fatty liver . Thanks

Now a days I am having a digestion problem as well. My doctor has suggested me to take Tab.Diapep for 10 days (1 -0 -1).

you can definitely take chocolates n every food you wanted to have. Liver will take 45 days to come into its normal position.
Radiologist Dr. Pranav's  Response
Oh yes dear you can take chocolates.

As liver after hepatitis takes abt 45-60 days to recover so it shd be normal now if your blood tests are normal.
Weight loss after hepatitis is natural, so relax. Your appetite will improve, as you will start having craving for fatty foods again.

Fatty liver is a condition of health where liver deposits excess fat. It could be due to your lifestyle or a sequale of hepatitis. Do some exercise like walking...daily & take less of red meat & high cholesterol foods.

I am diagnosed with jaundice by my doctor. It all started with high fever (104°F) then doctor called for first blood test and urine test which turned out to be normal and after medication the fever was gone , meanwhile I had breathing difficulty which was treated (a chest x-ray was done , all normal) , then after 2 days a blood test was done again and I had billirubin (5.47) . I was told I had jaundice . medications are given and meanwhile an ultrasound was done which says : Mildly diffusely hyperechoic liver echotexture with diffusely thickened , oedematous walled of gall bladder and peri-portal cuffing suggestive of hepatitis . after 2 days i have pain in right part of abdomen . I wanted to know my doctor is giving me 2 liver tonics (Livfit & valueLiv) and 2 capsules (Essentiate-L & Pantocar-D) ,are the medications correct ? Because he is not an gastroentrologist . And how much days would take for my recovery? What food I should avoid or take ? And cautions etc ? And what does pain signify? Please help Ps : i used to have white coloured facies but now it is perfect and naturally coloured and the urine is reddish brown in colour. I have occasionally occasional coughing also.
