my mum has end stage liver disease and is still drinking heavily even after numerous long stays in hospitals. i am trying to make the most of the time i have left with her but it is proving very difficult as she is hardly ever sober. i would say she is drinking more now than ever. anyway she is drinking approx 40oz vodka each day. she has severe difficulty in walking and has a pain in her groin that is affecting her mobility.she thinks it is a strain but i don't think it is that. the pain gets worse when she drinks.she has had all the usual symptoms asscociated with liver disease including a small stroke. anybody have any ideas please

It could be a symptom of osteonecrosis (also known as avascular necrosis), which is literally bone death.  It attacks the femoral head and hip socket and other large joints.  One of the risk factors for it is heavy drinking over a long period of time.  Other than that, it could be a hernia.
 
Your mother should see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Allie, I am sorry that I can't answer your question. I am also sorry to hear that your mother is still drinking. Chances are that she will not be around much longer. I can only imagine what you are going through. I know that it can be very hard dealing with an alcoholic. I wish you the best of luck. You and your mother will be in my thoughts and prayers.
