Esophageal Varices

I was diagnosed with esophageal varices a year ago and the Doc told me to only "lose weight". I knew nothing about them at the time and could do nothing about it because of insurance. Now my insurance has changed and I went to my Gastro doc and he said if I in fact have varices I have severe liver damage. I am having another EGD tomorrow so he can verify them and I also have a swollen bile duct on ultra sound, upper right abdominal pain, itching, nausea, fatigue and high liver enzyme. Previously I have had very high liver enzymes, blocked bile duct, pancreatitis, gastric ulcer, reflux, enlarged liver.

My question is does anyone have any clue what could be going on? Everything I read sais cirrhosis. My varices were grades small, non-bleeding mild. Please be honest, I can take it. Thanks in advance!
