Re: End Stage Liver Disease?

Thanks for your help. I wish I could get more information - but no one seems to really want to give an answer , I do realize that they cant and that everyone is different etc.. The last lawyer I spoke with suggested I wait until the doctors felt he was bad enough for me to get "power of attorney" and I really dont want that (she said it is somewhat of a nightmare." Right now , I feel on hold. My son has taken the brunt of this and has since moved out (staying with friends) because he is very mean to him. He does not deserve it and it kills me to see it, so he is better off, but his life has been very badly affected by the addiction as well as the illness and surgeries. Do you know if once the ammonia levels are high do they ever go back to normal; they have gone down some.
Thanks, Karen
