Hello Feeling Helpless, welcome to our forum. Hope this forum will help you not feel helpless. The doctor should get the results from his blood work and should reveal any information that requires immediate attention and can get a baseline of what is going on with your spouse. That's a start. Depending on what is revealed, I'm sure the doc will let you both know what is next. My husband has several issues going on with him besides ESLD/Cirrhosis, he also has thyroid and is taking synthroid as well, he also has sugar diabetes, a damaged pancreas and a heart murmur. I know when he became sick, it started with feet swelling, decreased appetite, losing weight fast, exhausted all the time, no enery, and jaundic looking skin and in his eyes. This was about
three weeks before he ended up in ICU and almost lost his life. So there can be several things going on simultaneously. Just watch him and make sure he's doing okay, if something doesn't seem right, call the doc or take him to the emergency room right away. The swelling, make sure he elevates his feet often and decreases the amount of salt intake if he uses salt. It will help. The Lasix should help. Please keep us posted on what the docs find. I'll keep you in my thoughts an prayers.
