Hello and god bless you all,
I would like some information and support with my dads case. My dad was diagnosed with hepatitis c and cirrhosis of the liver in 1995. He was never given treatment for his condition and as the years passed his health declined. He was in and out of the hospital several times a year. My dad was not placed on the transplant list until 2001, the year he passed away. His death has been extremely difficult for me and my family to deal with and I still grieve for my dad. In my heart I feel that he has been stolen from us and that more could have been done. I don't know if I am just still in denial and having a hard time accepting his death. My dad was only 53 and to me his was still young. My dad was a Vietnam Veteran and I don't understand why he didn't get any treatment from VA. I really need to know if there is a time frame for a patient to be put on the transplant list. I've read in other web sites that it should be done immediately but in my dads case it was not. I apologize for throwing my issue at you but I need answers so I can move on with my live and accept his death if there was nothing that could be done. I'll appreciate any information or support you can provide.
