My mother has been diagnosed with non-alcoholic cirrhosis. She is presently in the hospital with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. She also has been severe ascites and edema in both legs. She continuous for the past year is losing blood and requires bimonthly transfusions. She also has portal hypertension.
They drained 3 liters of fluid from her abdomen two days ago and she is starting to swell again. She is in ICU and is suffering from hallucinations and is very disoriented. She is 72 years old.
My question - judging from these symptoms alone, what stage liver disease would you guess her to be in and what would her prognosis be?
The doctors are very hesitant to predict anything and very difficult get a straight answer from.
