I Have End Stage Liver Disease Secondary To Cirrhosis .
I was a heavy drink and at the time I came down with a very bad kidney infection. Not realizing that my kidneys were shutting down and thus backing up my system to the point where I went into full renal failure. I was hospitalized for ovr 2 months and the Dr's did not expect me to survive. Survive I did do however and at this point I have full kidney function now, but my liver has not faired so well. They have removed my Gall Bladder in an effort to alleviate the pain I was in, however I am now so anemic that surgery almost cost me my life. So hre I sit sick and miserable and wondering if there is any happiness for me in this dark tunnel of hell. I no longer drink anymore and to be honest I do not miss that aspect of life. I just find when you are young (36) with a terminal illness, that life can become very lonely even with the vast amounts of friends I have. So I just wanted to start with my quick story and see if there are others in a similar boat that would b willing to share their stories. Would be nice to meet new people who can relate to my life story!
