I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions:
I am completely convinced that my husband has cirrhosis. He has been a heavy drinker forever (@ least 6 pints of beer a day). About a month ago, his ankles were swollen for no apparent reason. Now,since about a 3 weeks ago, his ankles and calves are huge and so is his stomach. He, supposedly, went to a doctor bc I wouldn't leave him alone about this. According to him, the Dr wasn't concerned about cirrhosis bc of his blood tests. (Though she did say his liver enzymes were high. ). She sent him home telling him to get compression socks, walk more and take vitamin d -3. I am completely convinced that there is something more seriously wrong. I don't even know if he's telling me the truth. Normally I wouldn't think he would lie or keep something from me but in this case he is acting very weird. He gets all defensive and mad if I bring this up (which is not at all his personality. ) To me, he seems to have all the symptoms of cirrhosis (except itching and severe cramps...tho he has mentioned cramps in his hands and legs now and then in the last couple of months). I have no idea what to do. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
