Hi all,
I posted quite a while ago now about a very good friend of mine that has cirrohoris of the liver, Well she was in hospital for about two months and was finally discharge, and touch wood she was doing really well but this year alone she has been back to hospital twice, but she has said to everyone that she hasnt been drinking, which I find really hard to believe.  She was admitted to hospital for her asthma the first time and the second time her lung colapsed, could this be all related, Im not sure.

Dear Clare,

Even if she has been drinking, it's her decision. I would bet though that if she has truly been drinking she would have been hospitalized or extremely uncomfortable from it. My dear friend, Mary drank for about 6 months after being told she had cirrhosis. She finally stopped because of the pain and now (a year ago in January) she says she is thankful for a disease that got her to stop. She tried for many years without success.

Your friend needs you right now. Don't be afraid to give your opinions, etc. but remember that it's her life and you are just there to be her friend, not her keeper.

Best friend is in ESLD, has HepC and cirrhosis.

Thanks Joan,

Its just so hard watching someone you love do this to themselves, but at the end of the day it is her decision.  Went to see her yesterday in hospital and she did look awful, all she did was itch her legs and her stomach looks like she is four months pregnant, and her skin has lots of scabs and she keeps picking them.  I am there for her as much as I can be, I asked her if she wanted a drink and she said no, and that she doesnt even think about it, but this is just a lie, because when they send her home the first thing she will do is have a drink.  Could her lung and asthma have got worst because of the cirohorris.
