cirrohsis of liver and cure

My mom has been showing symptons for liver disorder. We have visited many doctors but till no no liver specialist has confirmed with us the condition is so?
But however the symptons are very much similar to cirrohsis which one of my relatives told me.
just last week she had some test and the doctor told her she has developed jaundice in blood and she's running a fever also for the last few days with shivering. She usually has lowe blood pressure and but now sometimes it goes way low below 50 also
Would be glad to receive a lot of suggestions as really don't know what to do? as she's seriously not feeling well
I have been to 100's of websites. all of them have causes for cirrohsis but no one website has cure for this ??
Help !!!!!!!!

Re: cirrohsis of liver and cure

There is no cure for cirrhosis. It's a progressive disease. Pancratitis can also cause fever, chills and Jaundice. Your mothers doctors can do blood tests to determine if she is having liver problems. If she is then normally a biopsy is done to determine how much damage has been done. Cirrhosis is the last stage of liver disease. If damage to the liver is caught and identified in time and what's causing the damage can be eliminated it is possible for the liver to rejuvinate.
If your mom is still having a fever and cold sweats/shivers and is yellow (Jaundice) the ER may be an option. If not I would follow up with her doctor and aske them what lab work they did. Did they do a liver panel? If so, what were the results.

Hope this helps.
