Hello dear. Welcome to Healthcaremagic. I read your query and I understand your concern. It seems you are suffering from alcoholic liver cirrhosis.
Treatment for cirrhosis depends on the cause and extent of your liver damage. The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of scar tissue in the liver and to prevent or treat symptoms and complications of cirrhosis. You may need to be hospitalized if you have severe liver damage. A gastrohepatologist willevaluate the situation. It is good for you to stop the alcohol intake totally. Take care.
Hope my answer was helpful, if yes, vote helpful.
Regards, Dr Olgeta Xhufka ( general and family physician ).
