Just found out 4 days ago. All her dr will say is stay away from salt and have her labs checked once a month. And that there is no cure. At least that's what mom says. I wasn't able to attend her doctor visit. My family thinks she needs to be taken to a major hospital like U of M for treatment, immediately, but they live out of state and are wanting me to carry out all of their wishes. I told them that I will do the best I can, but I am a single mom, and i work full time. I cannot take time off from work or I could lose my job. I have a mortgage to pay and a daughter to support. I live 5 miles from my mother. Her husband is clueless so he can't even really be considered, as far as my mother's care is concerned. I am not my mother's MPOA. Nobody has been appointed that, yet. I guess my question is if anyone has dealt with someone with cirrhosis and does she need to be taken to U of M Hospital for care? or is what her doctor told her all that can be done? I should add that she also is battling with diverticulitis and is in need of a hip replacement, but can't get it because of the infection. Thanks in advance for your replies.
