Advanced Liver Cirrhosis Prognosis Question
This week my doctor told me my cirrhosis is in the advanced stage. Its a combination of autoimmune and fatty liver disease. When asked he told me I have about 5 years. My biggest problems are fatigue and encephalophy which I have some medications. They cannot treat me for my autoimmune problems because that can hurt the liver. Has anyone had a similar problem?
I don't fit the fatty liver profile, I don't have diabetes, high cholesterol, or high triglycerides. I do have sjogren's which is autoimmune disease and can damage the liver.....I would like to know what I can plan for since this is not the normal. Drugs and alcohol have never been part of my life so I can't blame them. Its very confusing as how I got to this point in the last year, thanks to anyone who can share.
