My ex husband has just been told he has cirrhosis and 95% of his liver has been damaged, has anyone got any advice on what this means for him?

    I'm presuming he's a drinker or was or has it been caused by something else.

      Sadly if it's that bad I would say that his options are going to be limited but if he stops drinking now forever might possibly give him some extra years, what did his hepatologist tell him his options are.

      Yes they do live with me, they are 15, 12 and almost 9, they don't really have much of a relationship with heir dad which is sad, but not for the want of trying! I just hope this doesn't damage them too much sad

      I think that children are much better at dealing with things than we give them credit for, try to plant the seed over time to prepare them, that's all you can do and be there for them, just try to remember you now have a life of your own which sounds harsh I know but that's only my opinion

    Sounds like the only possibility for him is the liver transplant waiting list if he is eligible.
