Hi my dad has been diagnosed with decompensated alcoholic cirrhosis maddrey score 65.9. He got admitted to hospital in May with pretty bad Jaundice. Doctors kept him for 2 weeks, they did many treatments to bring bilirubin down and took blood tests every day.
When he was discharged didn’t have ascites, few weeks later his belly was getting bigger and was having pressure in abdomen. When he went to hospital for a check up they found ascites.
I am very concerned and scared that this ascites is a sign of end stage liver cirrhosis and he doesn’t have much time to live.
Can anyone please tell me if you had been diagnosed with ascites, how many years you lived with it before you got a transplant or whether it disappeared?
