What treatments does she need?

Hi. First of all thank you so much for your previous responses.
My mother lost blood by mouth again after 2 year later and about  2 week ago. She has stayed at hospital at least 2 time for 2 week in a month.  Now she is very weak that could not move and talk.  Last night she was coughing badly.  She also got ascites for 4 months.

1. what treatment should we do for increase her blood level and stop her ascites?
2. Must she stay under inpatient control?

Thank you so much

Unfortunatelly she is not. In Mongolia we have not do liver transplant by own , only last year in september we had first living donor liver transplant done by South Korean  liver transplant team in Mongolia.

If you need any further question please  let me know.

Thank you so much

it may be necessary for her to stay in the hospital.  diuretics can help the ascites--some people use dandelion root which is a natural aquaretic.  medications calloed beta blockers can sometimes help prevent future bleeding from varicose veins in the GI tract.  lactulose may help with ammonia buildup.
