My Name is Andrea and I have been married to my husband for 23 years. He has been a heavy drinker in the past, but recently before we knew he had cirrhosis, we were talking about rehab, so that was already in his mind, but a little to little a little to late... His doctor has told him to cut back on his alcohol intake by 1/4 amount per week, that quitting cold turkey can be dangerous??? We are not sure how much of his liver is damaged, I just feel so confused and unsure of what I am doing. Please any guidence would be GREATLY appreciated! I have been reading everything, I can they took a meld test, but we have not gotten those results yet, Oh and at the same time he was dianosed with Diabetes and also he has had a heart attack sometime in the past year.. too much for my Brain..Please give some advice, I need to be there for him, but I am not even sure what to do?
Thanks in advance
Andrea
