what is chronic liver parenchymal disease with cirrhosis; varices and ascites?

This sounds serious: To translate, you have liver cell damage and scarring (cirrhosis), which caused abnormally elevated portal vein pressures which caused venous distention in esophagus (varices). You also developed fluid in abdominal cavity, because of the high portal vein pressure. This imaging study is showing advanced stage of liver disease. You must get a specialist to treat you.
