Hi, My Uncle has been diagnosed with sclerosis of the Liver, after having been rushed into hospital last week.
He has not left hospital as yet and all we have heard is that things are not looking good and they are keeping him comfortable and running more tests.
Could anyone please help us understand what this means ?
He is 59 years old, had traveled extensively for work, likes a glass of wine with dinner but does not drink excessively, is a bit overweight (only a couple of stone - nothing too bad) but has always eaten rich foods.
Would this mean that he needs a liver transplant and if so - will he be in hospital until he gets one ?
Could they just give him medication - and if so why have they kept him in hospital so long?
We are getting a bit worried and having googled, we just get so much contradictory info I thought I would ask here ( I am a member of Fibro, Thyroid and PA myseslf and know the people on those forums are very helpful and knowledgeable so hoping someone here can help give us the basics)
