Hello, my first time posting here. My fiancé (48 male) was diagnosed in the ER with cirrhosis caused by alcohol about 3 weeks ago. They said his liver was enlarged so they did an ultrasound, we went to a GI doctor a few days later and gave him a meld of 28 and put him on 2 fluid meds for ascites. He quit drinking immediately, his belly has gone down a lot, he’s not as jaundiced as he was, he’s eating a very low sodium and organic diet (fruit, veggies, a little lean meat, protein smoothies). He feels and looks so much better. Are these positive signs that his liver is compensating? Do people get diagnosed with cirrhosis and later find out its alcoholic hepatitis? I understand you’re not doctors, I’m just looking for some hope. Thank you!
