How long does it take for an enlarged liver to go back to normal? Weeks? Months? Years?
I have had an enlarged liver for over a month now and am concerned that it does not diminish. I suspect it is an enlarged liver.
I have been a binge drinker (of alcohol). I have been having a swollen abdomen since the last time I did drink. I don't drink anymore. It's been over a month I had any alcohol at all. I have had problems on occasion eating divers foods. I usually eat light, ie. non-greasy, cooked (not grilled or baked) foods. Still my abdomen feels swallen, and on occasion I feel pain after eating. I drink a lot of water. I have good appetite, and my stool, altough not as normal as it used to be because somewhat clayish, is not off-color. It is brown. And my urine is light yellow.
I do feel tired though most of the time. I go to bed early and when I wake up I still feel not rested.
I am concerned that I may develop some kind of liver disease or jaundice.
If I have some early signs of cirrhosis, does early cirrhosis stop if one stops drinking alcohol like I did, or does it expand/grow with time? Does anybody identify with my condition and has any answers for me? Thnk you.
