they most certainly are! the yellow eyes are of great concern! basically this is a medical emergency, he needs a doctor ASAP. it sounds very much like Alcoholic Hepatitis at least, it could also be Cirrhosis.
If he stops drinking right away he could have a fit, he needs a supervised detox.
He must act to save his own life, its a very horrible death for many.
every drink damages his organs further, he could also go into an acute phase of Alcoholic Hepatitis and be dead in a couple of days or weeks.
Im praying that's its not at Cirrhosis yet, if he gets help now he may make a full recovery.
You are obviously worried too, act now and get him to the hospital.
So sorry to read this. Here's another community that may be some support as well:
Thank you for your help.
I know these are bad signs. I guess part of me was hoping i was over reacting and making a big deal out of nothing.
I can not convince him that his health is in danger. Believe me....I have tried. I think things are at a dire level now and I worry about him every day.
He is such and active healthy guy. He has a demanding job he goes to every day,and he plays a lot of sports. I think he only continues to play those sports because he can drink while doing it.
I guess his physical activity level, and what not made me think he couldn't possibly be in that great of danger. But the more I read, I see when the signs are showing...it is usually too late.
I will keep nagging, and praying....maybe he will listen.
Thank you again for kicking me in to reality.
your right by the time there are signs its a race against time to look after the old Liver.
He may have some alcoholic hepatitis, which he could reverse. he is going to die horribly and sooner than he thinks if he doesn't sort his problem out.
how old is he and how long has he been drinking like this?
he is only 36 and has been drinking this heavily for about ten years.
It just keeps getting worse.
It's hard to talk to him because it is just pointless when he is drinking...and I don't see him sober much.
He was complaining about a right rib pain. He did have some trauma and it could be that...but it seems like it is radiating....
and he is always having hip, back pain...saying he pulled a muscle...I just think it is more that that....of course he doesn't believe that.
also, sorry to be blunt...but it seems like he is like hyper sexual...if that is a thing...like that is ALL that matters....he didn't use to be like that...it is a huge personality change I think. I always chalked it up to being a drunk...
Those are symptoms of liver disease.
