My husband is 60 years old and up until a year ago would drink at least a half to a pint or more of whiskey a day along with 2 or more beers every day.I threaten to leave him if he didn't stop drinking whiskey because he was getting really mean. We have been married for 38 years. He now has a burning pain around his midsection and back which is constant. His abdomen is very large and he has a large knot on his right side just under his right breast bone. he has had these symptoms for well over 2 years. he refuses to go see a doctor and is always asking me what could be wrong.

Burning pain around his midsection and back could mean that he has developed a heart condition as well as liver problems.  As evidence by large abdomen and pain I right upper quadrant of abdomen.  He should stop drinking and see his Doctor before he developed jaundice - then that could mean that he is going into liver failure.
