I am newly diagnosed and very scared and confused!
I was rushed into hospital with infected acities, they did a liver biopsy which came back abnormal, they intubated me and put me on the ventilator and transferred me to a specialist liver hospital, kept me under for 5 days while they did tests, I was told I had NASH then I was told its Fibrosis then the last doctor I saw said its Cirrhosis.
She said its advanced Fibrosis so we are treating it as Cirrhosis. I had an ultrasound scan a few days ago and the tech said that the liver is enlarged and very corse but doesn't look quite like Cirrhosis.
I read on Google that the average life expectancy for someone with Cirrhosis is 9-15 years, I am absolutely terrified I am going to die and leave my children without a mummy 💔
I feel like I have been handed a death sentence 😔
