First you need to find out if the pain killers are an opiate? if they are not then you need to stop taking them immediately!  also stop drinking until the swelling is gone and it sounds like in your case you really need to consider stopping for good. Pain meds can be very hard on your liver and im sure only making it worse. why would you live with this pain for 6 months. you need to be seen by a doctor right away. take good care of yourself, dont end up like me... diagnosed with cirrhosis at 38 on 03/23/10 Take good care of you!
