My mum had been told last week she now has cirrhosis, I suppose I've joined to ask where we can get some support from, we live in Hampshire, England. My mum is 51 and my full time carer, it's a big shock for us all and I'm struggling with worry after her appt with the liver specialist. Especially as he could not give a prognosis I just keep fearing the worst is going to happen soon. She's waiting on having an endoscopy to check for varices in the next couple of weeks. What should we be expecting the drs to do? I have tried to research as much as I can but to be honest I've just scared myself. She's not been feeling well at all, very tired much more than usual, nausea, off her food, pain in back and also diarrhea (the drs don't seem to think the diarrhea is liver related ?). I just want to make sure I can support her in the best possible way. I hope this post makes some sense - I'm so sad and sorry to read how many of you there are suffering.
Thanks for listening, Becca x
