Hi everyone, this is my 1st post here.... My Mum in law was diagnosed with cirrhosis a few months ago. She wasn't a drinker, and the cause "could be" fatty liver. She is taking spironolactone 50mg & frusomide 20mg (to help with the ascites). She has type 2 diabetes. She is quite upset about this, and I really hope you can help me answer a few questions for her:
- she gets pain from the scar caused by the drains. Is there anything she can do to relieve this pain?
- for those who believe in milk thistle, is there a brand you can recommend?
- any tips on how to handle the internal itching?
- anyone been successful in preventing / slowing down the fluid build up?
