Need medication for 3 liver condition and severe fatigue

I am trying to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight . I am on prednisone and will continue for at least 3 years. I am on a 2000 calorie a day intake. I just recovered from a double mascetomay and I am now at the point that I can start a daily exercise routine. I have stage 3 liver condition so I struggle with severe fatigue. However I am determined to lose this weight and maintain it. I have gained 30 pounds over a period of 6 months.I am discouraged because of the FAT the prednisone has cause . Please reassure me that I can overcome this with proper diet and exercise. Suggestions welcomed.

Hello,

Is it stage 3 cirrhosis or stage 3 fatty liver? Yes, in case of fatty liver sure you will recover with diet and regular exercise. But cirrhosis of liver may need medical support with necessary liver transplantation. Please post your scan reports depending upon that will see what condition you suffering from.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
