My husband is 51. We have only been married for 1 year, but have known each other for 35 years. He told me a year and a half ago that he has cirrhosis and hep c. Basically, we got married because we are best friends, love each other, and he doesn't want to die alone. We have no insurance. He has a big belly,veins all over it. His legs have varicose veins, and bad small veins around his ankles, calves and feet. He has bleeding in his mouth every night. When he rinses his mouth, it has small blood clots. His breath is horrible. He is losing weight, even though he eats quite a bit. He will not stop drinking. Now he is having confusion, mostly when he is drinking...The thing is he never had the confusion before, thats a pretty new thing. He says something, then the next sentence, contradicts what he just said, then in the next is mad at me saying I was the one saying it???? He is making me confused! I don't drink. Now he has started smoking pot, supposedly to get off the alcohol... now he is doing both! He won't go to the doctor, or the ER... Sometimes he has chest pain or pressure. Does it sound like he is in the final stages? or is this something that could still go on for years???? Help me, I need to know!
