MysDad is 53 and found that he had alcoholic liver disease and continued to drink. He started losing strength in his arms. He has developed jaundice, with very dark yellow eyes and skin. The doctor ordered a CAT scan, which revealed cirrhosis, and the doctor said my dad had liver cirrhosis. He started having seizures and couldn't stand or walk without having them. He was admitted to ICU and was told that his blood pressure was terribly low and ended up getting a blood transfusion. We're still waiting for him to get better.

I was diagnosed with alcoholic liver cirrhosis 7 months ago. Admitted to hospital, ascites, bleeding verices, vomiting, a cirrhosis child's score c. After taking diuretics, prapanalol, lactulose, vit b and thiamine, my liver function results are normal. Positive thinking also helped a great deal. Doctors were even talking about a transplant. No need, there is hope. Healthier than I've ever been.
