My dad (63 years old) has recently been diagnosed with cirrhosis. He has been in the hospital for 30 plus days and now he has ascites (tap done today), HE (started yyesterda- only one dose of lactulose given) and failing kidneys. He is stable enough for dialysis. And will be starting that soon. I am only 26 years old and scared. I don't want anything to happen to my dad.
A little background cirrhosis was discovered through gallbladder removal but there was a bile leak which led to sepsis and then this precipitated cirrhosis symptoms. The wbc count is stabilized and dad is on the normal floor. Just weak and in pain.
