This is my first post...was diagnosed with alcohol liver cirrohis about three months ago. Really finding it tough to write this, I suppose because it makes this whole thing feel more real.
Well since then I have been put on to the following medication by a gastro in india, (after a endoscopy showed small varices and portal hypertension while ultrasound showed a normal liver) Udiliv 300mg and carvedilol 25mg twice a day, does anyone have experience of these tablets?
I have lost a lot of muscle mass and I am thinking about taking whey protein to build my muscles back up, is this advisable?
Will be coming back home in May and cant wait to see a NHS doctor, and london hospitals that you could recommend?
I have not touched a single drop since diagnosis, struggling to eat the right food though and exercising little.
Starting to get back pain and pain in hands. Short term memory is very poor bit it was never that great to begin with🤣.
Any ideas on how long I will live, lol?
I know it's all my own doing but any advise/help will be much appreciated.
