Hello I read your comments on your health problem. I am going through the same thing with a friend here in California, I can't comment on your stage of health but my friends only got 2 or 3 weeks left. The Dr says the liver does not heal it self. His stomach has to be drained every 2 day's He is now turning very yellow. I wish you the best and may God help you back to total health.

im 29 years old with advanced liver disease due to alcohol..i do not drink daily maybe my body just dont have the ability to eliminate it. im from a country that liver transplant is so expensive i don't have the money to buy medications so im not taking any,im still working even its very hard for me. i work in a ship as a seaman. what disappointing me is every year i have 2 medical check up but all of my results are ok they don't have any idea that i have this disease until last year according to my x ray and ct scan my liver is swollen so i stop drinking immediately. i dont know what to do now if i found out earlier i should have stop drinking earlier its to late for me now.i think my kidneys are failing the only symptoms i have is itching and tingling in my feet forgetfulness and confusion,slurred speech sometimes..you are lucky people your government supported you in this horrid disease..the only thing i can do now is to make my suffering short you know what i mean..every night im looking to the stars that maybe some little help falling from above and that i think its not gonna happen.. is there somebody can give me advice on this ****..coz i really dont know what to do.
