Patient :My father (52y/o) is an alcoholic, and has been for most of his adult life. He was sober for 1.5 years after he was hospitalized for acute pancreatitis. He has started drinking again, about 3 months ago. If he continues, how long do you estimate he has before he starts showing signs of liver failure?
