Yes my best friend was diagnosed with a fatty liver 3 yrs ago she has had problems on and o ff with this. Her most recent sympton is the fluttering in her liver area. I thought maybe this was just blood pumping into her liver or a new symptom of her FL. Can u please help?

my friends daughter was recently diagnosed as having liver flukes. they have made their way to her stomach and intestines, and she has begun throwing up these flukes. no one in our area knows really what to do and the strongest medication that is supposedly available hasn t helped. she has no insurance and no gastroenterologist is willing to treat her without it. we have done research and one in 2.7 million americans is suffering from this parasite infestation. what do we do?

We have a friend staying with us that states was diagnosed with scerosis of the liver, probably not correct spelling, anyhow he told me a Dr. told him he had about 2 or 3 months to live due to this and I asked when did this Dr. tell you this , and he stated 2 or 3 months ago, I am curious if there are any signs or symptoms I should be aware of or should be noticing? He drinks heavily and takes medication, but I have no clue what to look for medically or if we may be taken for a ride for a place to live etc.
