My husband was diagnosed with AIH and cirrohsis January 2014 and is now an incredibly youthful, fit to fight 80 year old. He has had a very large portal vein thrombosis for the past two years, encephalitis and Ascites is a major problem, he now has an umbilical hernia. He has reached end stage liver disease and is under the care of our local Hospice where he spends a couple of days a week in their Man Shed. He still drives himself there and of course he sleeps so much during the day, not much at night. Before his illness we travelled all over and have a small cottage in the States but obviously our lives have changed dramatically and mine is on hold. We have made wonderful memories together and I wouldn’t change anything but is there anyone else out there caring, living with this time bomb and feeling so isolated?
