... has been a drinker from time to time. But not an alcoholic. I don't feel like enough to have caused this. He has ascities an is jaundice. He is having severe abd pain. Is this normal? The ascities is improving some with fluid pills. Should we push for more testing as autoimmune conditions could have caused this? They did a liver biopsy. At the time of hospitalization his liver, spleen, an gallbladder was enlarged with a golf ball sized mass on his liver. Biopsy showed it as fatty tissue? Anyone experienced this?
