I am so sorry to hear about your husband but hopefully he will get his new liver soon . My husband also has ESLD but he is not high enough on the list for transplant so I know what you mean when you say you want him back! Take care of yourself and best wishes,
I just wanted to welcome you to the forum, Trinky. You will find a lot of support here. At least your husband is high on the transplant list, so hopefully he will get a liver soon and be feeling and doing better when that happens.
We have a medical word/terms spelling thread, in case you'd like to check that out. I just bumped it to the top.
Yes, the attitude is very normal for someone with encephalopathy, which he obviously has if he's taking Lactulose. I've never heard of anybody who does like Lactulose. You can try putting it in a drink that he likes, to help mask the taste of the Lactulose. It's very important that he take it.
Creatinine is an indicator of kidney function. Doctors are not quick to put someone on dialysis, even temporarily, so if they are doing so it is because he really needs it.
Try to sneak in some time for yourself, even if it's just a short walk or a bubble bath. It's important to remember to take care of YOU!
