zenn211 So far the verdict is still out on this maybe by the time your done they well know more but the best even at that time I would be honest with the doctor and ask them you would not want to go through this all Then have to start again and the older meds.that was use for this Lots of doctors would not treat a patient again if they are just going to turn around and do the same thing I seen this happen several times and also Insurance companys..But they may know more by the time your off treatment Wish you the best but be very careful Chuck1957

Hi Chuck1957,
Thanks for your quick response. Your points are well taken. I appreciate your help. I have since discovered through research that once a patient has cirrhosis of the liver it can not be reversed. However, it can be hindered or slowed down.
Therefore, any alcohol, socially or otherwise would only further the progression of the liver hardening process.
So, I am finished with alcohol all together. I am grateful for the blessings that I have been given and I will not squander them off for a few moments of pleasure in return for continuous heart aches and pain. This would spell suffering for me as well as my family. I want to live! Thank you Chuck 1957.

Chuck,
You are so right. Yes, life does fly by fast enough. I want to be finished with these feelings of extreme fatigue. I mean just simply no energy at all. I will be glad to see the day when I can just feel normal again.
:-)
