What are the chances of getting a liver transplant?
MY friend has been drinker since I can remember, and she has been through a lot..including being put into a coma due throwing up blood due to acites. I guess they put her into a medical coma so she could sober up. I am unable to obtain you could assist me with, especially, what is the life span of someone who refuses a transplant and most likely would be refused at this point anyway?
She "slipped" and is still drinking, albeit just a coupla beers a day, which is far less than before. But still not good.
What are her chances of getting a transplant? Greater than less? I've offered part of my liver but she won't listen as she is mad at me. when I bring it up, as she "has no problems with alcohol" so, in your experience or in talking with your own doctors, is her life span going to be decreased without a new liver? Her doctors will not let me have any information unless I have Power of Atty. That's why I'm just asking your opinion I know I can't get P.O.A. I'm just asking for opinions and personal experiences.
I have adult-onset epilepsy. I am here to answer any questions, offer hugs or whatever you need to the best of my disability.
