This is probably a really stupid question but I will ask anyway.
If somebody with ESLD (and assume that they only have weeks left to live) has an alcoholic drink, what would happen?

Hi BigToe, I've always been told that no question is a stupid question. I'm not sure that anyone can tell you what would happen though. I do know that having only one drink for a person with liver disease causes more damage. My husband has even been told not to take night time cold medication because it contains alcohol.

Hi Bigtoe,
 
I think if someone with ESLD were to start drinking they would become very ill, my husband was having two glasses of wine per day before he quit drinking and he would get violently ill, mostly vomiting. He has done so much better since he quit.

When my friend had her last drink (well into knowing she had cirrhosis) it was at Christmas a year ago.   Many months after it she told me what she'd done.   She said she had searing pain in her liver and abdomen areas.   She looked at it as a blessing to see that it was not going to give the same comfort it had before.   She never drank again and finally sees the wonder and joy of facing this scary life.   I stopped when I was 24 because someone I truly loved would never have been able to love me back.   Whether it's pain or love or both, I'm glad Mary and I both gave that !@#$ up!  

Take care.
