what could be a result of my liver injury?

Bleeding: Is the main issue, but if that goes away on its own, long term complications can include hemobilia, a connection between an artery and a bile duct. So it's important to be followed for a year or two and be aware of the long term consequences.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Rare liver injury reduced wbcs. Why?

Leukopenia: Reduced wbcs are termed "leukopenia" and can occur during any organ injury. For the liver, this can occur during a more chronic phase that results in cirrhosis of the liver. At that point we see the effects of cirrhosis on other organs, specifically the spleen. The spleen enlarges (splenomegaly) and sequesters white blood cells (wbcs) as well as rbcs and platelets. This results in pancytopenia.

Are there natural drugs to take to treat liver injury?

No: The liver actually heals quite well if not too severely injured. The worry is the potential for massive blood loss. In liver injury, we mostly wait it out if there is no bleeding.
