i was diagnosed with cirrosis in 1997, had all the tests for it. In 2000 I was still drinking on and off re addiction and so had an heamorrhage, violently vomitting blood. I am still on propanol for portal hypertension along with spironolactone, folic acid.
i had/got ascites, I still have endoscopes for varices each year.
apart from all the ill health cirrosis has given me over the years, the surgeons will not risk any surgery on me, because of a low platelet count of 28 (I'm a 60 yr female) they say I could bleed to death with surgery. I have, what was a very painful incisional hernia, though it looks unsightly, they will not repair it. So now I have this bulge at stomach site, I've no idea if any acitices is still present.
main reason for this post is that I'm wondering if their platelet count has been severely affected like mine, through liver disease.
