Hello all. A close relative of mine has severe liver disease so he's going through regular drains, blood transfusions, no energy and so on. I wanted to ask you for more practical advice. His doctor has been incredible but she is now coming up against very negative consultants. They are indicating there is not much point to find out why he's losing blood internally, blood transfusions and consultants are negative about length of life at his stage. He is in his mid 70s and has been told no chance of a transplant. My second request for advice is about pumps, He has to make a decision about a pump (not many options open as we did our own research into it) or to attend hospital for drains. I want him to make an informed decision as he's very scared about the whole thing. I guess there are pros and cons and risks of infection but any experiences on this would be really helpful. Finally any advice on helping with severe lethargy? Any experiences of severe liver disease and maangement?
