anything about an appointment from the evaluation clinc.She has become severly depressed
...is haveing trouble sleeping and eating now , how will this affect her?
If your mother has stable cirrhosis (i.e. no increase abdominal girth, no bleeding, no signs of hepeatic encephalopathy [confusion]), then there is no danger in waiting a week or two for an appoinment with the appropriate doctor. If, however, her condition is not stable, then an earlier evaluation is needed.
