I believe my husband has cirrhosis. Heavy drinker all his life,hes 60,has nose bleeds,bloating,swollen ankles,itching,impotence,and a mass in the middle of stomach above belly button that feels like a mango and he has dark yeloowish circles under his eyes. He is in total denial. He had these symptoms five yrs ago, stopped drinking for 6 months and felt good and slowly started drinking back to heavy and thus symptoms returned. He is not "sick" and is still goes to work but im so worried i dont know what to do. He thinks im making this up and its all my imagination. He says he has a glass of wine at pm when actually he averages about 7. He uses to drink a handle of vodka a day for over five years. Please someone tell me im not crazy and he is indeed in danger. I have read so much information and have lost other family members to this. Just need some support i guess and guidence. Thank you!
