I've found this site very helpful so far, reading through people's experiences and how they deal with living with Cirrhosis. Thank you for all for being so open and honest.
My dad was told from his latest ultrasound scan that it suggests he has Cirrhosis, he had an MRI scan last week and we are now waiting for the diagnosis to be confirmed and see what we're dealing with on the 2nd of May - when we see his consultant.
He is so tired all of the time and is constantly in bed if i'm not there to take him our for lunch. Which leads me to his appetite, which is barely exsistent now.
He gets confused really easily and sometimes doesn't make any sense then other times he is very aggressive with how he talks to me.
I now get his wine for him as going to the shop is quite the task and he is currently drinking at least 3 bottle of red wine a day. I have found the extra bottles of white and sherry in the recycling bin as he is living in my grandads house where they have very old booze lying around, so not sure exactly of the amount of what he's drinking.
He has absolutely no interest to stop drinking and I'm just curious to how long that might mean he has? I know that the consultant will be able to tell us a lot more but just feel a little overwhelmed with it all at the moment.
Thanks in advance
