A member asked:

My brother, age 50, had bile duct obstruction caused by a gallstone stuck inside it. it took him 25 days to get the stone removed using ercp treatment. will 25 days of obstruction become a reason for him to get liver cirrhosis in the future?

If the obstruction does not recur you are not at risk of cirrhosis from this episode. Do not drink alcohol. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
