Hi Loving Daughter,
First let me start by welcoming you to our forum and offering my positive thoughts and prayers for your father's continued fight and survival.
It sounds like your father's doctor made up his mind that there was nothing to do after the brain stem bleed and doesn't want to see the actual person in front of him. Push for a second opinion and a third or fourth until you have a medical team that listens to family and patient, is proactive and gives you options. I can't say about qualifying for a liver transplant as my husband, Gene, is not eligible for one so I'm not as up to date on requirements as others here may be. But I do know that Cirrhosis and encephalopathy are an up and down battle and it doesn't sound like time to throw in the towel.
Hi Kelsey and welcome to HW. Sounds like everyone gave you some good advice. I would keep pushing for another opinion also. I would also ask questions point blank, and not let up til They gave clear answers. Does your father have a feeding tube? Is he having bowel movements? I am not sure if your father has a hepatologist, but it is very essential, as they are very skilled in treating the liver. Be sure to keep a pencil and paper handy, so you can write any questions down that come to mind. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, let me know if there is anything we can help you with!!
P.S. Annette, you can exchange phone numbers via e-mail. The safest way to do it!
