Slow going.: Probably means that the liver disease you have is very stable or at least progressing slowly. This could be seen with many different types of liver disease - hemochromatosis. fatty liver, chronic hepatitis, alpha 1 antitrypsin, chronic alcohol or med use, etc. Really could be just about anything
