My sister has been diagnosed with end stage liver disease. She requires perioncentisis every three days. She is lucid at times but extremely irritable at other times. Is there a listing on the progression of this disease? It would help me plan her financial affairs and select the best treatment. She is currently cycling between hospital and nursing home care
Response from Dr. McGovern
It is time to discuss these issues with her primary physician and your social worker on the case since her clinical status seems very advanced.
