I have end stage cirrhosis and major problems w/ ascites. I was in the ER at least 15times in 2012 and Hospitalized 4 times. I been hospitalized once this yr and ins the ER 3 times already this yr!! Im on a very high dosage of spironolactone and furosemide daily. I had my stomach "taped" 5 times so far. I read that these are milestones in the downhill slide of decompensated cirrhosis. And that the patient has approx 2-5 yrs to live. Anybody got any info on this?
