I've been living with cirrhosis for around two and half years now and at the moment seem stable, scoring 7 on child push so just inside criteria for transplant but no need just yet.
But I'm constantly feeling dehydrated and even after a good night's sleep (or so I think) I wake up feeling completely drained, more tired than I felt the night before and again very thirsty. It's a big effort to get up but I make sure I force myself to do it as I hate just lying in bed not achieving anything.
My consultant just reduces my spironolactone intake ( was on 100mg ) and blood sugar is ok.
I was wondering if this kind of feeling is common with liver disease and if anyone had the same issues?
I'm under 3 monthly surveillance with a consultant and currently take 100mg Thiamine, 20mg Omeprazole, 25mg Spironolactone. Also take Codeine for pain as I also suffer from Ankylosing Spondylitis but anti inflammatorys are now a very big No!
