Hi my husband gave up alcohol six months ago completely. However, I worry that it was too late. He has ascites, yellow eyes and skin. He was rushed into hospital again yesterday with a chest infection. As the liver can't cope he needed drugs to help do it's job. I keep reading terrifying things about a decompensated liver and am so frightened of losing him. He is only 56. He hasn't been recommended for a transplant but they said that he will keep 'filling up' with fluid and is very susceptible to infections, which, in turn are a danger to him. I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you.
