Hi all I am new to this site my mom was told she was in end stage liver disease about a year and a half ago, she has been an alcoholic for many years. She has been in and out of hospital with all sorts like bleeding varicoses, bad kidney function etc. she has been going in every 2 weeks to have her acites drained, a few times she has gone in and become drowsy and confused this time she is like this but worse than she has ever been, she was not aware we were there today, they have told us it could be to do with the withdrawal or she could have a build up of toxins and her liver can not get rid off these due to it hardly functioning. Has anyone been through this and is she likely to pull through?
