Hmm! When my varices erupted back in may and I was subsequently diagnosed, the consultant said "Child Pugh 'A'" score, A few weeks later, he said that they don't use that anymore and now use the' MELD scoring system, mine was 10 and I wouldn't be referred to QE hospital Birmingham yet. Had a letter yesterday saying that they now use the UKELD scoring system of which mine is 51, so I'm to go to QE hospital for transplant assessment. I feel fairly well at the moment. 3 scoring systems in 4 months doesn't help to simplify matters. Still, good news I suppose.
Sorry about the rant guys.
