Could be cirrhosis : Your symptoms and tests are worrisome for cirrhosis of the liver. That can be very serious once these complications develop and you should be sure you are in the hands of a competent gastroenterologist for a firm diagnosis and treatment. If you are drinking alcohol, you should stop immediately.
