Hello waitin on a t/p. Hope you don't have to wait very much longer for t/p. I'll bet you're tired of being sick.
As for my diet I keep salt as low as possible, less than 1500 p/d and don't eat much meat. A nice rib eye about
every 2 weeks and the rest of the time I try and stick to the white meats mostly with small portions. Lots of fruits and veggies. Not very much bread. I use protein powder occasionally to keep up my protein intake. I've been exercising lately as I've gained 25 lbs. post TIPS. Still not used to the tire around my middle. My edema stays at bay when I exercise and haven't had ascites yet. I have non-alcoholic cirrhosis. Also I drink a lot of water and juice. I don't take benzos or sleeping pills like Ambiens or antidepressants. For me it's not good for the HE and my meld was 14 two months ago. Very little to no HE these days, I'll take it.
Let me know if I missed anything or you need to know about
something else. Hang in there and let us know when you get your transplant...ehh?
