My father has severe cirrhosis, now in end stage liver failure. He has been moved to hospice care and has a tube in his stomach which drains his fluid from ascites. The care givers tell me his bag fills up multiple times a day with fluid. He hasn't stood up in over a month, he cant even shift himself around in his bed, we have to help him. He is skin and bones, so so skinny and hes losing his ability to hold a conversation. The doctor told us he has a 50% of not surviving for 3 months based on his 30 MELD score. Recently he had a short spout where he could lift his legs and roll over in bed himself for 2 days, now that energy is gone and he's been back to not moving for a week. What has been your experience with a doctor's prognosis on liver failure? Mostly spot on? I wondered if his movement was the "surge before death" or "end of life rally" but that was over a week ago now. He is definitely losing weight fast, struggling to carry on a conversation, cannot move... he also tells us he sees shadows of cats and birds in his room. We think that may be a reaction to his pain medication though. Has anyone else ever heard that? How long does he have? We are 3 weeks out from the doctors prognosis now.
