Ronnie this year. The size of his gut says a lot. This is not all fat folks, it is the size of his organs.

He doesn't look good. I'm not very knowledgeable about bodybuilding, but he has what I would describe as an ugly bloated look.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the the "gut" is a result of HGH, not steroids.

Steroids can cause increases in the size of internal organs; hubby, because he is on steroid medications (anti-rejection stuff) is always asked if he has an enlarged liver...because he's a bit overweight at the moment and they just assume it's internal organ size which it isn't as yet.

He looks pretty ragged. Kind of sad, actually, after growing up watching him taking all those Olympias. This is definitely not the physique I dreamed of having when I was a kid, which seems to be what's happening in bodybuilding anyways.

But those will be corticosteroids, possibly prednisone, not anabolic steroids. Different kettle of fish.

Yep, but don't all steroids basically have the same effects? I don't know much about them and the differences, in that sense.

Simply put, no. I believe there are cortico steroids and Anabolic Androgenic steroids and they do 2 completely different things.
The reason they are asking if your Husbands liver is enlarged, isn't because the steroid is causing it to grow, but more likely because the steroid could possibly put strain on the liver which would cause it to enlarge, If that makes sense.
