My mum has had cirrhosis since 2014. Once diagnosed she carried on drinking. She had 18 kg of fluid drained from her belly in July this year, then came to live with me. Since then she has been in and out of hospital with varying degrees of confusion. This time she's been in there for 3 weeks. She's had infusion of vitamins which hasn't really helped. Wernickes - korosokof syndrome has been mentioned. What is the recovery rate from this condition? Has anyone experienced this?
