I have posted infrequently but read and follow the posts regularly. I can see it’s a highly supportive community. My husband has end stage liver disease diagnosed a while back. He has recently relapsed and is in hospital going through a controlled detox. We are separated and live at opposite ends of the country but I do what I can to support him. However in spite of what I have read I still don’t know exactly what end stage means. He has a cocktail of drugs to take on a daily basis to help with the confusion he suffers from amongst other things. He has spells of sobriety but they don’t last long. I am worried that he will lose the tenancy on his flat as he is not coping at all. The social services have been amazing, he sees an addiction specialist every two weeks and attends a club for recovering alcoholics. Sorry i’ve rambled on! Simply want to know what end stage actually means. Thanks in advance.
