just heard that an ex colleague and old mate is in Hospital with liver failure-through drink. its an old story-he's had low level jaundice for a long time and continued to drink. saw him in July and he looked ok but things have taken a turn for the worse. i'm going to see him sunday and just wondering what his prospects are? I don't know the severity but it sounds bad. I've seen posts here of people recovering from liver failure. I wouldn't think a transplant is an option considering his drinking history-he's in early 60's.
I know nobody can aswer this but prospects? sounds grim to me-any grounds for hope if he stays off the booze?
