I hope everyone is well. This is a serious topic and I honestly think I am dieing.
I have been drinking heavily for around 4.5 years now (anywhere between 60-100 units per week).
Stats - 5 foot 7 (170cm)
Weight - 56kg (normally 50kg)
Age - 32
Symptoms - Weight gain +6kg over the last 2 years( I am naturally very skinny) and Abdomen looks very bloated/large and unnatural compared to rest of the body and my ribs are showing. I even look skinnier at 56kg than I did at 50kg, except for my abdomen.
The reason I say very heavy drinking is because 60-100 units per week for a 50kg male I think is considered very heavy drinking.
In this time, I have visited my doctor and I have had 2 ultrasounds. First one was in July 2020 and second was in February 2022. Both times they said the scans came back normal, which is shocking. After reading many topics I was lead to believe that the ultrasound is the gold standard for testing any liver problems/fluid.
So does this mean I am perfectly fine even though 2 ultrasounds say everythings okay?
