He was first told he had liver problems after a blood test about 8 years ago. He was being treated for hypertension by our GP from 1996. He was never referred to see to see a Consultant in hospital or given any treatment. He suffered depression last year and retired from work. in May he had an itch and the G did it must have been a change in washing powder. Now after researching this disease I see all the signs of cirrhosis were there. About 8 week ago he had a gross swelling in his scrotum and odema in is legs and Gp sent him to hospital where he was given fabulous care bay a GI consultant but it was too late. Should my G have done more a lot sooner. I am so angry.
