My brother, who lives 300 miles from me, called with news that he has Hcv and Hbv and has been diagnosed with liver failure.He has had 12liters of fluid drawn in the last month.What does this mean?

was he in the hospital? is there a chance for a transplant? im not sure how to answer you without knowing some details and none of us are drs...maybe ask your brother if he can set up a phone appointment with his dr so you and he both can get some answers..im sure its hard hearing news like this from so far away,,,will be thinking of you and your brother,,,

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
