The Liver: The liver is a marvelous and mysterious organ that can heal itself usually if the thing causing trouble is removed or stopped. I see you are on acetominophen, one of the most dangerous products for liver damage. Please stop the acetominophen immediately. Throw it away and never ever use it again. But, in general the liver can heal very well.
