Socially on weekends. Nothing crazy

I tore my hipflexor in December and was taking a lot of painkillers. I might have fucked my liver doing that.

What else do you do that could damage your liver ?

Edit - didn't see the painkiller part. That sucks man. Good thing is , liver is a tough little bitch. Hope you get better soon

Taking painkillers at the recommended doses and intervals wouldn't cause liver damage like that.

Unless you were abusing it  :merch:

It could if it were an extended period of time. I took a lot cause it was the worst pain I've ever felt. I don't recommend doing it.

That's abusing it. It doesn't have to be a long period of time for your liver levels to be elevated.

Elevated by how much?  Elevated ALT levels doesn't mean permanent liver damage.  You will however have to cut out everything that makes your liver work hard like alcohol and and any pain killers to allow your liver to heal.

82. Should be below 55

Oh you're fine dude.  Your liver will heal.  Over 100 is when you should worry.  A friend of mine back in his early 20s had an alt of over 200 and he was all I'm dying and boohooing and shit.  Well his liver is fine and he is still alive.  Your alt is elevated from acute toxicity.   Take care of your stupid ass and don't do that shit again.
