... vein to liver. Which caused his liver to be in stage 4 cirrhosis. His doctor says he has 6 mths to 2 years to live. Can anyone help me with any knowledge of this being true timeline ? I have been told by several nurses " friends" that 6 mths is more accurate.. Not 2 years. I know we can't ever make that exact call for only God can. But If the 6 months is more accurate my heart needs to know. Can anyone help me?
