Hi there! Welcome too healing well!!!
I have CF related liver disease or Mild liver cirrohsis (depends on which doctor I ask). They describe it too me, as my liver been 'sludgy' and also inflamed. I take Ursodeoxycholic Acid, which doesn't make it better, but stops it getting worse.
I've not heard anything like this about
a feeding tube. My friend has the same state liver cirrohsis as me, and he has a peg for feeding. He's never mentioned anything like this though. As far as I know the tube goes directly into your stomach, and is there for feeds, when low weight is a major issue.
Hope you are well!
