I don’t know where to start other than I’m at breaking point with my ex husband. He was very ill last July to Dec when diagnosed with decompensated liver and alcoholic hepatitis developed sepsis nearly lost him few times
They told us he had 6-12mths to live if he didn’t drink he could live longer.
I ended up writing a blog last week to get everything off my chest because I’m so alone it’s marriedtoanaddict.co.uk fo anyone who wants my full story.
We found him a place to live 2 mins from me which helped me if he needed anything I was there in seconds. I’ve bent over backwards as we have a daughter
8 weeks ago I found out he is drinking again 2x 3ltrs extra strong cider a day as well as abusing OxyContin. He doesn’t know that I know what’s the point he’ll only lie in fact looking back I don’t think he ever stopped drinking
His health has started deferiatng similar to how he was last year vomiting everyday rectal bleeding bloating swollen leg with gold ball type swellings. We found out in January 5cm oesophagus has stripped away part of his gullet, also there is a problem with his small bowel the report says burnt out! Whatever that means
He’s not seen his specialist since Jan until yesterday he was concerned re swelling n bleeding n has booked a colonoscopy and endoscope in a couple of weeks, he asked a number of times if he was drinking and told him no I had too look away
The last couple of days he started having nose bleeds lasting up to half hour.
My question is this I’m not sure how he is still alive given the abuse his body is having.
Are nosebleeds and swelling in legs part of liver failing?
How long are we looking before his body gives up?
The consultant checked his groin yesterday but not sure why.
I’m at the end of my tether if you read my blog you’ll understand why.
Thank you for reading and commenting in advance xx
