I'm new to this website. My husband has been in the hospital for 12 days with alcoholic cirrhosis/liver disease, having all the classic symptoms. He's moving to a nursing home today. My biggest worry/fear/concern is that he has gotten worse (higher ammonia, bilirubin levels, even more ascities after being drained, more muscle deterioration) during his hospital stay and I get no sense of how good or bad it really is or will be. He can barely make it to the bathroom in his hospital room. Could it take days/weeks/months to recover, if ever? Does anyone have experience with this horrible disease?

Thanks ahead of time!
