It sounds like you're working on that--good for you. But keep in mind that alcohol, in addition to being bad for the liver, is high in calories and therefore also bad for your diet. ...Read more

A ct scan will show fluid collections to determine if possible leak. You need to look at indirect bilirubin to know if it is obstruction. I would rule those out first and if negative the liver needs to be evaluated maybe biopsy, see your surgeon. ...Read more
