Progressive fibrosis: The liver becomes progressively more fibrotic and functions imperfectly. Fluid accumulates in the abdomen and other organs become affected in late stages, such as the lungs and kidneys. Early changes may be reversible with alcohol abstinence but once into late stages the changes are not reversible.
