My dad has advanced liver disease and today we have been told it's end of life care. He is really confused and has lost so much weight. I'm confused as we went to see someone about a liver transplant and they said they would try an ng tube to build him up and they would maybe reconsider giving him a transplant, but his Dr's are saying after trying the ng tube only 4 times in which in his confused state he pulled out. it's not worth it and he won't build up to the strength to survive a transplant and if he did there are other medical issues,bur not sure what they are. The dietian said she thinks they could build him up and was a bit unsure why they are making the decision she has only seen dad for 15' minutes though and the consultant on the ward has seen him over time and watched him deteriorate in recent months. I'm just so confused as to whether I should continue to fight or let my dad go. He is very frail and I can see he has deteriorated but he's my dad and I want to give him the best chance.
I'm also suffering with anger too as he ignored a lot of warnings and we are now here. I know alcoholism is an illness and all that but when your the one watching someone do this to themselves it's so hard.
Wondered if anyone has had any experience or advice they could offer me.
