So nice you were able to get away for the holidays. I hope you had a nice break.
I get the same thing you do. MELD 7 MELD Na 8. CP A.
I am not sure why your hepatologist has your MELD at 26. I think I would ask the hepa' to give you the numbers he/she used for that calculation. It looks wrong to me.
You wondered about
decompensated vs compensated. If you experience jaundice, ascites, variceal hemorrhage, or hepatic encephalopathy, you are considered to have decompensated cirrhosis.
Was a transplant eval part of your conversation at Shands?
And themister has been decompensated for 6 years. Big Hugs
