we r not doctors here...and someone would have to post...if their still alive..with the condition ur describing.Sounds like some very heavy organ damage and brain changes from all the alcohol...wherever u r u need to check out some Al-Anon for urself...ur father has chosen his fate...and frustratingly so there isn't a thing u can do about it.Helpless is a feeling none of us like!i hope u have a good support system...and some good family to help u thru this.....prayers for u my dear!:)
Thanks for your sympathy,I was just thinking someone perhaps had a relative with similar symptoms.
I basically read most that will come up on searches in google.
Most statistics available online gives a person 2 years max in this condition.
None of the studies I have read differentiates between people who continue to drink
after a massive asciates just a brief reference on a UK website that put it to 2 - 10 months.
i would think that each person has a different immune system...like ppl who die from this present virulent flu strain..that did not come directly from hogs......have weakened immune systems predisposing them to a quicker demise.Another factor that i have seen happen with ppl is that they have a diagnosed health problem with a compromised immune system and can die from another undetected/undiagnosed health issue lurking in the body that may have been caused or exacerbated by the present illness.Such a roll of the dice here!Time will tell!Sad and tragic that your father...that any person lets the drinking get this far out of hand!
