I had a real bad time almost 2 years ago. I started to vomit blood due to variances had them banded but I just got more. I ended up in a induced coma of which I cannot remember from 10 days before I was put in a coma until I came round a TIPS procedure was carried out whilst in the coma.
It was liver cirrhosis that caused the varices as I was a heavy drinker for years. I survived and do not touch alcohol at all and I don't miss it at all. Rather than a addiction I think it was a lifestyle.
Although I now have diabetes, nerve damage to my feet and short term memory loss due to oxygen deficiency.
Since this illness I have regular scans which I was told my liver function had increased by 15% At no time has a liver transplant been mentioned does this mean my liver cirrhosis is not that servere? I cherish every day now as I should,my be here
