My 20 year old daughter had a liver transplant 3 years ago, and is now in chronic rejection. She was gravely ill last winter, but with a change in medications and 2 weeks in the hospital, she was feeling much better. She is now in end stage liver failure, with most if not all of her bile ducts gone. She is not on any transplant list, and is unlikely to be listed. We understand that the outlook is bleak, and want her to enjoy her time left. She is absolutely miserable, with horrible itching all over her body (including her teeth and under her toenails), and wondered if anyone has any suggestions to help with it. Any input is greatly appreciated.
