My liver was so bad i had jaundice for several months which was do to my strongyle infection. My dr nicknamed me the walking dead as my eyes were so yellow and my skin was so pale. The meds will clear this up but it does take time . my pain was extremely bad in back and sides and I couldn't walk without tears in my eyes as each step put pressure on liver and kidneys . I did refuse pain meds as mom cautioned me on putting my liver and kidneys thru anymore than it was going thru and my dr ripped up the script as he was only trying to help .
