My 60 year old partner has non-alcoholic cirrhosis and is in a lot of pain from enlarged spleen etc. He also has gallstones which the doctors won't remove because of portal hypertension/bleeding risk. His quality of life is pretty poor, he gets very fatigued and sleeps a lot during the day. Having been (finally!) diagnosed 6 months ago, he's been left very much to his own devices by GP and consultants who just say vaguely that he may be suitable for a transplant when he gets worse (!) and in the meantime, to just take paracetamol. We are both struggling and I would really appreciate hearing from anyone who might have suggestions, ideas, experience to share. I'm also able to offer a listening ear and support for anyone who has a partner in similar circumstances.
