Hello, Mermaid57, and welcome to the forum! I know that they do take into account other health concerns when they place someone on a waiting list for a liver. However, they need to do a complete evaluation first. If your husband's doctor referred you, then you should follow up on at least a first appt. with the transplant center. Then let them decide if they want to go forward with evaluation for transplant (which is a long process.) Do you know what his MELD score is? That is what will determine placement on a liver transplant waiting list.
