Re: Process of Dying of Liver Failure?
Every case is different and it really depends on the underlying reason and degree of liver failure. If the doctors have given a prognosis of 'weeks' then it has to be assumed that they know there is no hope of recovery. I can only speak from the experience of an aunt who died unexpectedly of primary liver cancer. She suddenlly developed jaundice, was taken into hospital, had a liver biopsy which confirmed the cancer and she rapidly sank into a coma and died peacfully within 10 days.
It is impossible to say just what will happen in your father-in-law's case but rest assured that the doctors will ensure that there is no pain.
It is a sad and often traumatic experience for the family but death comes to us all eventually. Thankfully, modern medicine is usually able to make the inevitable end as peaceful as possible.
