My dad was diagnosed with cirrhosis 9-10 months ago. He had 10%liver function and all kind of complications. He was treated and was discharged but carried on drinking and eating poorly.
Three weeks ago he fell and ended up with multiple bleeds to the brain and a blood clot. These have now stopped bleeding and started to repair already, however his memory and communication was still very bad he couldn't even talk it was a bit like a stroke.
He had his acites drained and it was full of blood, doctors think it was some kind of internal bleeding. Which we believe have now stopped.
On Monday he had another drain and was discharged from the ward he was on and sent to the liver ward for care. Two days later his tummy was full again, he was still very lethargic and confused. When they went to drain their was poo in the acites. They thought it was a tear in bowel but all CT came back ok.
We felt that the end was near he can't walk due to lack of muscle, in constant pain and lethargic all the time, then today we walk in to visit and he is talking clearly, a bit aggressive but was not that confused.
I'm on the other hand am very confused! Is it possible to make a recovery in so little time?
