This may help you also Bev,

http://www.livestrong.com/article/210239-decompensated-liver-disease-symptoms/

Most persons with cirrhosis will not know they have reached the end stage until decompensated symptoms have began to manifest. When these symptoms are no longer treatable the patient must have a transplant or the will expire. 6 months of documented sobriety by a transplant facility must be recorded in order to be considered for transplant. Unfortunately this does not guarantee a donor liver will be available since their are not enough to go around. UNOS is the agency responsible for determining which patients have the greatest need. The age cut-off for transplant is 65.

If you have more questions please feel welcome to ask.

I hope the best for you and your husband!
