Hello and welcome.
I'm sorry to hear about your mom. My husband has HCV/Chirosis. He is on the liver transplant list. I'm here to tell you that I know exactly what you are talking about when you say "your not as strong as people think". I feel the same. Yet somehow everyday, I get up go to work, come home and take care of my husband. Sometimes I wish someone would just come in and say, Pati, go .... just go and relax, don't worry about home or work we'll handle everything. Oh wouldn't that be a dream! But I think we are stronger then even we think we are. We work for peace in our lives, and keep going until we get it. So, anytime you feel like you are weak....give us a shout. Someone is always quick to answer and lift me...they will be here for you too.
hey I just wanted to say regaurdless of what the doctor says it only matters about the actual person who is sick.Does he have end stage liver disease, its what you get when you are far advanced with cirrhosis. My mother was diagnosed when I was 9 I am now 22. She was diagnosed with end stage liver diasease about 4 years ago. doctor said she is lucky to have made it this far. he says she should be dead right now but she is not. my moms liver isnt producing live liver cells anymore thay are dead. Her liver is completely damaged from the cirrhosis. Doctor said there is no more healthy part of my moms liver. she is not edgiable for a transplant. so the worst. I feel the same way. i was raised as a only child by my singled parent mother. it was always me and her. im terrifyed. But theres nothin they can do for her anymore. doc said too, that if my moms diet and medicene is still working she may have a year left. but if it doesnt she may pass a lot sooner. Its in gods hands. Really!!!!!!!!!!! I'm waiting on the phone call from the doc to tell me that my mom only has a couple of weeks. Sweety the best advice i can give you is try to use all the options to get him better. it might not be to late to do pegusis interfearon. my mom tryed it a few years ago and she was a non responder.it made her too sick. but some people can get rid of it if caught early enough. next option is transplant your dad might be able to get one. my mom couldnt. and if none of that works then just enjoy the time you will be able to spend. sorry if its not what your looking for.
