Hello! I wasn’t sure if I should comment an update on my previous post or make a new post. So here we are haha
We got good news today, the doctor said my fiancé is compensated!! He was shocked and happy with the improvement and said “you look incredible!” When he saw my fiancé (Billy). He said we could half the diuretics and see how that goes and after his endoscopy tomorrow, he won’t have to see him for 5 months. And his bilirubin dropped by half from January 2nd to January 15th! His levels were a little high then he said, but good. All great news and we are so happy. I cried of course and Billy broke down a little in the elevator as we were leaving. Now, my concerns are this. When I asked if Billy could eat squid and octopus, he seemed confused and asked why. I told him because he isn’t supposed to have shellfish so we were wondering about other seafood. He said “do you mean for overall health or for his liver?” It took everything I had to not be the sarcastic b*tch I am and be like “well we are here for his liver sooo”. Anyway, he didn’t really have an answer for that. All he said was low sodium and healthy diet. Then I asked if he could lift little 8 pound weights to build some muscle back and again, he wasn’t really sure but said it should be fine. He’s a great guy and super nice, am I being too paranoid here? I have learned more here and it felt like I was teaching him a few things! Should we call a liver centre and see another doctor to be sure? He did say we could have a Fibroscan but he said it would be pointless because he’s stage 4 cirrhosis (diagnosed by US and bloodwork).
