SD, welcome to the forum. Has Mayo done blood work, scans, etc.? Did they put you on medication? What are their recommendations? If you are interested in transplant (and I suggest you consider it), you will need to go to AA and have those meetings documented (have the chairperson sign a form at the end of the meeting.) Diet is also important. Educate yourself as much as possible. You are definitely not alone here.
Hello and welcome
I think most people at first hang about here a while, reading through the threads until they see something that makes them write in. I Know I did. You will find a lot of knowledge and understanding from carers and people who really have been going through the same as you. I am sure it will help.
You already have done so well by not drinking,that is half the battle.I wish that for my mum but sadly it has not happened yet. Your vision problems have you seen the doctor about that.I know my mum had cataracts on both eyes, she only managed to get one operated on, she is still waiting to get the other seen to.doctors said her alcoholism attributed to this, she can see clearly out one eye, but the other is very cloudy.
There is so much information on this site that will be able to help you educate yourself, Dont give up hope of a transplant.......go for a second opinion if you are not sure on the advice you are receiving.
