need answers

HI...this is my first time and i need answers badly. My husband has advanced cirrhosis, not due to drinking or hepatitis. Supposedly about 3 yrs ago, DR told him he'd be lucky to live 3 yrs.Not sure what that was based on!! He never told me until the other day. Not much was done during those years. Now, he is so sick. I assume its end stage liver disease but not sure. Has terrible ascites, they just drained 4liters and we are awaiting test results. Is it cancer? Also, legs and feet are very swollen. He urinates blood from time to time, very sleepy. Was confused due to amonia level, but that is better from meds. Also fluid pills are helping. Is this the end? How much time does he have?
