I am back regarding my daughter Lisa (this is Lee19). She had one drain and lost 30 pounds. Her doctor said she is a B- on a scale of A, B, C. This means C means a liver transplant. Since her last visit she has lost all of her muscle tissue and looks like a skeleton with a large belly. The water has increased even though she takes two different water pills. She eats very little but stays with recommended foods and can only sleep for four hours at a time because of the discomfort in her belly area. I am sick with concern and feel she is slowly dieting. She has another appointment mid November...should I consider another gastroenterologist if he doesn’t come up with a better plan? She has not had a drop of alcohol since she was diagnosed with this liver condition and has no friends since she lost her job three years ago. So she is alone except for me making trips to see her. I don’t want to lose her and I don’t know what to do. Has anyone been in this place and found answers? I am desperate. My daughter below.
