My husband is 64 and an alcoholic who was diagnosed last year with cirrhosis. We have been living apart for over a year now but I still do what I can to support him. My husband now lives in Scotland whilst I am in London. During the 12 months we have been apart he has been in and out of hospital several times, I have not been able to talk to anyone about what is going on as the medical professionals just wouldn't give me any details when I called. I understand why so this is not the issue. Anyway to cut to the chase, my husband stopped drinking heavily last October. I am not convinced he has been completely alcohol free since then but it is a significant improvement. He has signed the papers so I can be his power of attorney and he has arranged for me to speak to his doctor. So my question to this very supportive community is what questions should I ask? My husband is on the following medication - omeprazole, rifaximin, spironolactone, senna, thiamine, furosemide. He also drinks the ensure supplements. I guess I want/need to know how serious things are. My husband just says 'if I stay off drink, take my meds and eat well I've got a fighting chance' I know everyone's case is different but I need to make sure I am asking the right questions so grateful for any guidance anyone can give me. Thank you in advance.
