If you have no side effects you might be fine. If you do get side effects go to a doctor as soon as possible. Try to stay away from drinking, drinks lots more water to help your body hydrate after the party.

Its your liver.
But honestly in my medical opinion i would say NO.
The liver is a fascinating organ as it regenerates over an extended period of time. It can take a beating and recover quite nicely. Unless this continues for awhile (although tolerance depends on many factors like the agent and genetic predisposition). But in general the liver is a durable organ.
Depending on the mechanisms of action the liver generally fails acutely, may plateau, and then decline. Whether chronic or acute liver damage and failure is not a joke nor fun.
In your case damage is done because the alcohol potentates (makes stronger) accutane and its effects on the body causing compounding toxic effects of an already toxic drug. Lesson here: skip the accutane dose if you anticipate drinking heavily. Or don't drink at all. Skip the hard liquors and use other alcohols (beer) in extreme moderation.
The water helped dilute the alcohol and the kidney's filtered it out of the body. Dilution is good because that makes the concentration less and therefore less hard on the body.
But a better way is to eat foods with fat and protein as it minimizes alcohol absorption.
Triglycerides are high because that is a side effect of accutane. Not a good one because that leads to heart disease..the number one killer in the world.
