Finally the day arrived and he was great. He told us the the Child’s Pugh score was 10 and I can’t remember the name for,the other score but he said to be considered for Liver Transplant the score is 49 and my husband’s score was 51. He is putting him on to Rifaximin and wants him to reduce the amount of Lactulose. If the Rifaximin doesn’t have the required effect then he will be referring him to the team at Cambridge.
As we drove away he said to me well that went well it was all positive. I don’t think he gets it. As the Heptologist never actually said that cirrhosis cannot be cured my saying it doesn’t count. I think he is refusing to see the reality of his situation and he has been told to it would be better for him to stop smoking as it dilates the blood vessels.
He wants him back in five weeks.
