Another person I know ( best friends sister), has just been admitted to hospital after turning yellow with acute liver failure.
Apparently she looked 9 months pregnant and suddenly became disorientated, not knowing her own name. She told my friend she had come to see the wrong person as she didn't know her.
Obviously she's been detoxed. I told my friend to ask for campral and gave her info for it.
No-one on here will be surprised that the doctor said he'd checked in the BNF and it's not suitable for people with liver problems, and is too costly to even consider as she'll probably drink again!!
Another example of how AUD people are viewed, nevermind a consultant with lack of medical knowledge.
I last saw her six weeks ago and she was 'fine'. Never seen her drunk or drinking much. Her husband went in the loft to get a case for her things and found at least 100 empty wine bottles. He was totally unaware she'd been drinking two bottles of wine a day for years!
She only finished working in July, the start of the school holidays. She'd been a teacher for the last 30 years.
Same problem, same hospital, same ward and even the same consultant I'd seen before. Nothing changes, just another sad story
