My 49 year old son has alcoholic cirrhosis of liver and is still drinking vodka . He feels terrible and is very confused but will not go to hospital . I know all about ammonia levels and all that .Since 2014 he has been in and out of hospitals almost every 6 weeks, TIPS saved his life but I think the end may be near by the way he is acting. Very paranoid doesn't know if he is dreaming or it is real, thinks everyone is talking about him and looking at him can't sleep or eat much cries all the time and is afraid if he goes to hospital he will die there. He calls 3 times a day and keeps telling me how bad he feels and it's time to die. He does not want to live anymore. How can I help him I am exhausted and he won't listen. Thank you . How long should he have After a TIPS surgery he wants answers
