@twocatmama, Unfortunately, no one can predict how long it will be until our liver fails to where we need a transplant. And no one has any promise of the outcome if /when we get one. I will share a little of my story
When my symptoms hit, they also hit with a vengence. I had no other health conditions, but my liver disease took both my liver and my kidney. I was placed on dialysis and had other interventions along the way. It was a difficult period of time for me and for my husband, my caregiver. My transplant team was exceptional in their knowledge and care that they provided. My family and friends gave me the strength to keep on going when I felt like I couldn't go anymore. One of my best decisions ever was when I said that I wanted to be evaluated for a transplant. Because of my transplant, I am healthy and active once again.
