My husband has Cirrhosis of the Live and Hep C.
If anyone has a spouse or family member they are taking care, I would encourage you to go to this site. They are very nice people. And they will help you get through it.
Husband has been sick since 2001. He passed out cutting wood. That is when they found the hep c then the cirrhosis. He has very low plalette count, he is very jaundice, he unrin is very dark due to the billyrubins. He holds alot of fluid in his feet, legs and ankles. His stomach is very large and he has gained allot of weight. He gets very stiff in his back and in some pain. His legs itch allot. He does manage to work, but it is begining to be very hard.
He is loosing some work due to this and has no sick days left. He only gets 3 days per year.
I think that sxxks! It use to be 6 days. Any way if any one can relate or help me please do.
I am very worried about him. 2 years ago he was a 14 on the MELD score, to become a candidate for a new liver. He is getting bladder infections and bronchitus allot. He sleeps allot and is very tired. He has not had any alcohol for 2o years now.
thank you and God Bless all of you!
