This is my first post and it is not the sort of post i would normally like to make on any forum.
A Memeber of my family is telling people that he has liver cancer and requires a liver transplant or he will die by xmas.....
The only problem i have with this is that he is a pathalogical liar.
Since he made this claim he has been out and about on holiday, drinking binges and generally living life to the full. there appears to be no sign of ill health. He has just gone to Turkey for a week then apparently he is "booked in" to have a liver transplant when he comes back.
Surely the donor is not living, therefore i cannot believe that they just have a store of these organs waiting for people to go on holiday then book themselves in when it is convenient.
Apparently he was diagnosed about 6 months ago(absolute max). Again surely this is rather fast.
I would love to hear what people who are waiting or people who have had a transplant think.
Again sorry for the horrid nature of this post but i am tired of my family being lied to and people feeling sorry for someone who can't keep his story straight.
I have seen the effects of chemo therapy as my father is terminally ill with various forms of cancer and it pains me to see someone playing on peoples good nature when there is nothing wrong with them,
Please let me know if possible what sort of symptoms someone with this condition would have.
I have just read some of the posts on this site and it is heart breaking to read how people are suffering with true illnesses.
My heart goes out to you
