My husband, age 80, has had heart problems for 30 years following his 1st & 2nd by pass. He has always been a heavy drinker. Last year he was told to stop as blood tests had shown his liver was compromised. He was in hospital for 15 days in January after collapsing, again he was warned about his heavy drinking, He is now showing signs of cirrhosis, weight loss, diarrhoea, no appetite & stomach pains.
He had an endoscopy last week & is having a CT scan on Thursday. What treatment can be given, he will not stop his bottle of wine & a couple of whiskys a day habit?
I am really fed up with him, no sympathy left.
