my father has liver failer from alcohol .how long can a person live with this ,he has bloated stomach an doctors cant do anything for him
Response from Dr. McGovern
It sounds like his liver is in the most advanced stages of failure. Bloating of the stomach may be related to fluid in the abdomen. Alcohol can unfortunately damage the liver beyond repair.
I would speak to his physicians about his exact case to ask your question about life expectancy.
