Hi everyone, hope you are as well as can be expected. I have just had a report from a Heptologist in Kings. I am getting very confused. I was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver 6 years ago and for the last 3 years have been told I need a liver transplant. When I saw the doctor at Kings, not my usual doctor he now says I don't need a transplant. He also said I don't have encephalopathy and ascities which I do have if I don't take diaretics or lactose my symptoms would be worse. I have spider veins all over the top half of my chest which are getting worse. I have a MELD score of 9. I don't know where to go from here. Any suggestions would be welcome. I also have varicies and have had a bleed, portal hypertension.
