Wondering if someone with experience with end of life patients with significant liver involvement can please comment on what I can expect as disease progresses, My doctor says it’s so varied he can’t say. I’ve heard through the grapevine that ammonia builds up causing delirium or that one sleeps for weeks. I would like to know how typical either of these are, as well as what other things happen. How can delirious patients be treated if at home? How long can that last? What about eating /drinking? Do we basically starve to death? I realize there are people who might not want to know this, but not knowing likely possibilities is causing me more anxiety than I think knowing would.
