My question is this, I was diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the Liver and not in a very good way. It was three years ago I had just endured a failed 19 year marriage and was staying with my sister in California. I was really sick one day with the utmost pain I have ever felt one thing lead to another and I'm having surgery for a kidney stone which was far too large to pass. I was in recovery barely out of surgery still very, very grogy from the medication and the doctor swung his head inside the door and said he got the kidney stone out and by the way you have "Cirrhosis of the Liver" and immediately left. My daughter was standing there and I looked up at her and said "what did he say, is that bad, where did he go, can't I ask him questions? The nurse ran and got him. He said he really is not the one to diagnose me, but he knows of a great liver specialist. I have ulcerative colitis and hep C and hpv. I guess you could say I didn't give a rip when I was in my early 20's which was in the 80's. Needles to say I had lost my insurance due to my divorce even though I qualified for Social Security Disability and deemed Disabled for the rest of my life. I've gone into the ER 4 times since then and now I can barely walk. I varies, swollen stomach & legs, ankles and feet, slight tempature everyday my lower right side is a constant pain. My mucus that I try and cough up is so thick it chokes me and I am unable to cough it up, one time I did and the mucus was green, it is as thick as peanut butter, it's just horrible. I have daily headaches, my feet get cramps and my calves get cramps and my memory is so bad we can have this conversation an in an hour or even less I won't remember if I sent this out or not. If I don't speak of something I"m thinking of right now, I will forget it. When I am trying to tell you something, there are times in the middle of what I'm trying to say I can finish the conversation. I don't drive anymore because I'm afraid of dangering other's and myself, because I'm extremely dizzy and I fall down all the time. I have that flapping of hands thing and there are times when I fall I can't get up, it's as if my knees don't work anymore. It took for men to try and pick me up. I tried to get out of the pool and I couldn't, I sat there and cried, about 30 minutes later I tried again and finally got out, but it was excruciating and my knees immediately bruised. The whites of my eyes are a very strange blueish greg, not yellow or brown, it's a very ugly cloudy blueish grey. My last visit to the ER which would have made my visits to the ER 4 times. I'm being treated by my GP because I can afford to pay for an office visit and he has read my blood count that were taken twice at the ER and has proscribed me a Diruectic, Tramadol for my pain and that's about it oh no Prosac for depression since my failed marriage of his infidelities and have opt to live in our home till I do pass away. I've never seen this female dr. before and I left there crying, she told me I didn't have cirrhosis and that she can't help me. I was there 6 hours, no fluids, nothing. What are your thoughts? Please help me understand.
