quick overview of me ... heavy drinker for as.long as can remember, collapsed start of December with phumonia. liver levels all really high, ascities, small vacies found, scans don't show any scaring but with vacies assume cirrosis ...
fast forward to now.
spend around 7 weeks in hospital, few transfusions various drips etc and put on water tablets (100 a day).
sent home mid Jan, water tablets increased to 150 a day, ascities goes, levels although still high heading in right direction (bilbrim was 485 now 100 and not very yellow)
I messed up water tablet dose and took 50 a day instead of 150, realised today as noticed tummy starting to get a bit bigger. obviously will ensure I get the does correct but I decided to look at ascities on Google. found many sites saying surval rate is around 50% for a year so got myself in a panic again. Does anyone have any advice or comments re ascities.. I am going to really try and steer clear of the internet as every day I find some new way of panickng myself.
