Hello, this is my first time posting on here. my husband was diagnosed with budd chiari earlier this year. As let we do not know the cause of this, heamatology appointment in Dec to try to find out. I know this is a raregain condition. my husband had stent via tipps procedure and is on warfarin, carvediolol and omeprazole for the varices. He has tried to go back to work as a self employed carpenter but only managing 3 days a week but recently was prescribed a certain antibiotic at a dose that was to high for his liver to cope with so is off work again as this made him feel unwell due to affecting his liver function. As this is early days for us, just wondered if anyone has had any joy with applying for pip with this condition (my husband is our main bread winner and we are not in receipt of any benefits at the moment and his critical illness didn't cover him for any problems with his lver, they will only pay out if he goes on a transplant waiting list) and if others with this condition manage full time work? Does he just need to give his body time to recuperate from all that's happened this year? He is now depressed about it all and I think it would help him to speak to others who are diagnosed with the same condition.
