I was diagnosed with alcohol related liver disease (cirrhosis) in Sep 2016. I went through the normal process of tests at my local hospital and then got referred to Kings for assessment. I was accepted in Nov 2017 and had a transplant in Dec 2018. My main symptoms were fatigue, lack of strength, asities, itching, jaundice, insomnia and other problems like keeping blood levels in check for surgery. On release from hospital my weekly clinic visits went well. However an unrelated back problem returned and I have been having physio for 2 months now to fix hip and sciatica problem. I have bad fatigue and am finding it a struggle to walk more than 400 steps before the leg sciatica pains start. So, I am trying to fix this problem so I can get my normal fitness levels backup but I have now become aware that fatigue can remain after transplant. I am now 4 and a half months post transplant and am wondering if this is as good as it is going to get ?
