I'm a newbie and posting to get some information in regards to my mother who has been ill for about 5 years and have recently been diagnosed with cirrhosis. They think it's due to an autoimmune disease but still not 100%. She has been in hospital For the last 9 weeks as she has developed ascites. She has lost a lot of weight and is just a bag of bones now. She has an enlarged spleen too. The last few days she has gone confused and drowsy. She has been like this a few times before on and off. But they say she has an infection somewhere and she's on antibiotics again. She's on high calorie drinks and a feeding tube as she doesn't eat very much at all. I have not seen no improvement in her weight gain at all. Sorry for the long story and babbling.
She is going to Birmingham hospital for an appointment in mid November. What happens here? Will she be put on the transplant list then or are there more tests before hand.
The doctors have said the only way for her to get better is to have a transplant.
Just after some information. Thank you in advance if anyone is to reply.
Sorry again for the babbling
