Re: what is the longest someone can live with cirrhosis of the liver without a liver
I understand. My dad was told in 2007, but I suspected it for a long time before that bc. he showed the symptoms and I did a little research on the interent. We almost lost him in November and that was a wake up call for him. But he still has bad days when the toxins build up in his system and then the next day he is a lot better. He will never get back to where he was and I know that. He forgets things easily and was out in the back yard burning trash and then set the yard on fire. So my mom has to keep a close eye on him. What is really sad, for me, is that he and my son are really close. We lived with them for the first 5 years of my son's life while we built our house. My son is now 7 and he is still very close to dad and this has really effected him in that he has developed seperation anxiety. And it makes me sad to think that my dad won't be here for my son's graduation, wedding, etc. My dad has stopped drinking all alcohol, so that is good. But he is stubborn in that he still pushes himself physically in doing stuff around the house to the point that he is completely exhauseted. Thank you for your time in responding and reading. It's just very hard. I am only 34 and am not ready to lose him.
