Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
If an abdominal CT and an ultrasound don't show cirrhosis, and your liver enzymes are normal, there'd be no need for a biopsy. I told you before, if most of your liver is still well, even a small amount of cirrhosis won't harm you.

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
IF their abnormal, and a screen for hepatitis is negative, you might still need a biopsy to see what's going on. I can't tell you why you don't have an appetite, but part of that may be from substituting beer for food.

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
they can take care of both problems. You might be having a bout of gastritis or, conceivably, an ulcer, but none of that would be related to cirrhosis.

so you don,t think I have cirrohosis of the liver

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
As I said before, even heavy drinkers rarely get cirrhosis, and, even if you do, you'll probably do just fine if you quit drinking.

so you don,t think I have cirrohosis of the liver could an ulcer prevent me from having an apetite

Possibly.

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
NO, NO, NO!! Lack of appetite this suddenly wouldn't be from cirrhosis, which takes a long time to develop. Whatever's the problem with your appetite, I doubt it's going to be long term.

I have been eating one meal a day for months
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I would like Dr Chip to answer my question
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
I've tried. Maybe one meal a day is sufficient for you if you're getting all those calories from the beer. I think you need to go to detox and get off the booze and you'll feel a lot better.

will they need to to do a biospy if they know its just the alcohol that,s effecting me if I stop drinking should that help me . i won,t drink anymore . if I get off the booze will I be able to eat again

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
your appetite will be ravenous! As I said, the biopsy might only be necessary if they suspected hepatitis or fatty liver. Seriously, I think you liver's still OK.

you don,t think I,ll need a biopsy because i refuse to have one done. I don,t want any needle in my stomach. . do you think I have cirrohsis
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
No, a biopsy probably won't be necessary, and I've answered your cirrhosis question multiple times above.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
