@romero1972, I am a patient, as are all of us on Connect. We do not have the training or authority to know if your mom might qualify for a liver transplant at any time in the future.
Has your doctor said anything about her hepatitic C? I would suggest that you ask him if there is any treatment that could help her. From my experience, it is hard to catch a doctor when he has enough time to consult with family members. However, I have arranged to be present when the doctor makes his morning rounds – Sometimes it is a long wait. Another option is to contact her head nurse, and talk to her about what can be done for your mom.
@romero1972, Your mom is fortunate to have you looking out for her. Do you think that you can arrange to talk with the doctor or the nurse?

Thank you so much for your response. yes I have and all they know how to say is, that she isn't a candidate or there's nothing else they can do for her. It's all negative on their behalf. I've been trying for them to transfer her to the Mayo clinic, they keep telling me they can't do that.. I don't know why!!
