... blood work shows compensated liver failure. What do I do? I have tried to make an appointment but the Liver specialist will not see me for another 5 weeks. The Liver specialist believes my problems (current) are caused by excessive alcohol consumption but I don't drink. Obviously I stopped the HRT immediately but I have had to cancel a major surgery because my blood clotting time is too high and platelets too low as a result of this problem. I already had a bad liver from when I was still a drinker and it took ages for my Liver to get back even some function and this has been wiped out in 3 weeks. So, again, what do I do?
