Lucy, I am also very sorry to hear of your results. However, you have been given some excellent suggestions. Find out just how bad the cirrhosis is. I had always been told I had no cirrhosis; however, when the right lobe of my liver was removed last May due to cancer, a biopsy was done on the left lobe and it was found to have "mild cirrhosis." So apparently there are stages. I wasn't told of anything that can be done to halt the progression, but I've been using common sense and eating very nutritiously. I don't eat much meat, and I've been eating lots of fruit and veggies. Also am making soups from scratch and drinking a lot of water, which I never used to drink. I feel really well now...not even as exhausted as I felt prior to surgery.
I had blood work and CT scans done last week, and will meet with my surgeon and my hepatologist next Thurs. for results and plan of care. I don't even know if I'll be a candidate for hep C treatment with the diagnosis of cirrhosis.
Be good to your body and take really good care of yourself. Try not to worry, and as Pink Grandma said, educate yourself and ask questions.
And please do come back here to us to vent and share. We are all pulling for you.
My prayers are with you and all who suffer from liver disease, and those who care for loved ones with the disease.
