Sharon, 60 stage 4 CKD and end stage decompensated cirrhosis with ascites

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi, my name is Sharon, age 60, from Cape Cod Massachusetts

I am a hot mess

I have decompensated end stage cirrhosis with ascites.

I decided not to have a liver transplant. I do not feel confident in my ability to recover from the surgery. It has a lot to do with also having stage 4 CKD. I don't feel confident in doing dialysis because liver disease is killing me, do I want to use what little bit of quality of life I have left in a dialysis center?

THAT is my question

What would you do?
