My Mom just got diagnosed with cirhossis of the liver. She never drank. We don't know how she got this. She was brought to the hospital in S. Jersey a month ago. My brother found her unresponsive and passed out.
She was bleeding from her esophogus. They fixed that, then she filled up with water. Up until last Friday it took the hospital all this time to diagnose her. She is home now but is very tired all the time, has not regained her strength. She has a home nurse that is scheduled to see her 3 times a week. What can we expect? She probably is not a candidate for liver transplant due to her age. I am very concerned about her condition...I call her every day to check on her. Anyone been through a similar scenerio? Thanks.
