10% liver left

Posted In: Liver conditions Anonymous | May 24, 2015 | 00:20 AM

My husband has maybe 10% liver left. High ammonia levels. Neuropathy in arms and legs. He has been in ICU for 10 days to detox and now waiting for bed in rehab facility because he is too weak to go home he can't walk. He has been an alcoholic for 35 years. When he talks it is difficult to understand. I am scared. Have no idea how much time he has left. What do I tell our young kids? From what I have read could be 1-2 years but I don't see him making it that long.

Do you have a Personal Story you'd like to share?
