... this year for acute liver cirrhosis. My husband is 37. He stopped drinking in January but unfortunately, the damage had already been done. However, the most recent blood work has came back with positive results with significant improvement and the doctor has cut back on a lot of his medications. What happens from here - will his liver fully recover or will there always be a remnant of this disease? Will he possibly need a transplant in the future anyway? I don't foresee him ever drinking again but can he not even have a sip of champagne at a wedding? My husband is not a typical alcoholic and I truly believe he wants to live more than he wants to drink. Thoughts? Comments?
