Hello. My name is Andy and my wife was taken to hospital last Thursday with Jaundice and Vomiting Blood. She is a relapsed alcoholic 61 years old with a history of cirrhosis.
She is very poorly and I was informed today that she has an acute liver failure and has a 40 to 60% chance of lasting the month. She is on a drip to rehydrate as well as antibiotics vitamin K and some other thing I've forgotten to help the blood clot to prevent further hemorrhaging.
Her Dr/Consultant is being advised by Kings Hospital London and she may be transferred. She had an endoscopy this evening so will know more tomorrow.
As you can imagine I'm worried senseless so have joined here to seek more knowledge and advice. In a bit of shock to be honest.. Had better Mondays.. Thanks for reading
