New diagnosis of cirrhosis

Hello all,

Looking for information. My mom got diagnosed with cirrhosis yesterday. She does not consume any alcohol. She had a kidney-pancreas transplant 11 years ago. I can't think of any direct cause...medications? She has never had a blood transfusion. I assumed they test for diseases when they transplant organs....

Anyways, she has it. She still needs to find a gastroenterologist. I have no idea how bad it is yet. I'm am wondering how long she has. I worry about her kidneys and pancreas...they all could fail....

Just looking for thoughts and directions to go in

Worriedtr

Re: New diagnosis of cirrhosis

Hepatitis is another main cause. Has she been tested for it? It cannot be cured but finding the cause and trying to control that can produce long term benefits. Hope they find something soon.
