I have just started caring for a relative with the above conditions, plus Hep C, Type 2 Diabetes, Portal Hypertension and associated issues. I don't know where to start for help with his care and can't find any information on prognosis. I suspect it's not great but both the hospitals he has recently been admitted to with complications don't seem to want to give me any idea of what to expect. I've had to change his GP to mine but am still waiting for an appointment. No body seems to want to expedite anything and in the interim I am struggling to cope.
