My Dad has cirrhosis of the liver due to abusing alcohol for years, this was finally diagnosed 8 months ago, as he finally went to see his GP, very stubborn man!!
He is on a few tablets now and gets bloods done regular, the thing is, nothing much more is getting done! He is skin and bones can hardly walk and is half the man he used to be. I know he recently got veins in his gullet tightened off to stop internal bleeding but this is all I'm aware of as he doesn't wish to burden me with details. I was just wandering, is the tiredness , confusion, muscle loss and exhaustion etc just something he has to put up with until he possibly gets considered for transplantation or the liver recovers itself (which doesn't look likely),? I just feel he is lying or sitting there every day wasting away, is this everyone's experience of recovery?
This is my first post and would love any help or advice, anything would be great, I'm at my wits end!!
Paul - a concerned son! Thank you all so much x
