Im new here and have a question concerning liver..My husband has been very ill over the years, last year he was so il we thought we were going to loose him. This year he is looking healthy (looking not is). His drs kept telling him his liver,kidneys,heart, everything is good. but what they are saying and what is happening to him are different, ill explain.Hes been an alcoholic for many many years,a heavy smoker for the same amount of time. The dr told him that he had cancer of the lungs and when he went to the hospital they told him its not cancer his lung has turned in on itself and they dont understand why. When he drinks now he has terrible pains in his stomach and heart burn and is violently sick (some times theres blood in there sometimes not), hes had diorreah for many years. So then he will go to bed for 24 hours and the get up tired, have a really bad chest and then go back to bed and sleep more, then he will get up have a few drinks and be fine, he will drink the next day and the cycle of being sick,heartburn, bad chest starts again..
Now he had a print out of his health in the last 10 years from the dr and in 2009 states he has cirrhosis, so he confronted his dr about it because the dr had told him that his liver was ok,and the dr said thats what the concultant was looking for so she put cirrhosis. and then the dr went onto tell him that he is looking healthy. I spoke to a friend whos husband died of it and she said he is showing all the signs of liver failure. I personally dont trust drs as i have known personally two men who have died through failure of drs.. Now the problem is he listens to the drs but the other day he said his liver is f.....ked..but im not sure if he is going on how he is feeling or if he is seeing what the drs put on the report as real.
My question is has anyone else had simular expeienced with drs and within themselves.
Thanx for reading..
