I am a positive 51 year old, living in Suffolk, who 18 months ago was made redundant from a senior role after 20+ years with a Major Construction Company. 12 months ago My wife of 26 years moved back to her parents with my 3 sons. It was assumed I had been suffering depression so I was first Diagnosed with NASH in June 2013. I was sent to hospital for a chest drain and ended up seeing a Liver specialist who immediately admitted me to hospital where I stayed until August. This week I was told that even with medical intervention I won't be in a position to get on transplant list (apnoea/weight/blood problems) which must happen within 4-6 months. Stat's indicate 6-12 months to live without intervention (if I simply look to achieve quality of life whilst maintaining a sensible diet and exercise). I Have told friends and family but whilst they have shed many tears it all feels very unreal to me and I keep thinking I'm going to wake up in a minute! Any support/ideas/encouragement etc. would really be appreciated.
