"alcoholic liver disease"
About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead) Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead) Gateshead NE9 6SX
A relative is an alcoholic and suffered serious problems due to liver disease and various complications, She was placed on ward 4 which is a respiratory ward due to lack of beds on ward 11. She has been on the ward for eight days with no improvement and we have been getting conflicting answers to the severity of her disease, have asked questions that a hepatologist or a Gastroentologist would know, but don't know if the doctors we are asking are experts in these fields. The patient cant comprehend what has happened to her and no family member has been sat down and had an explanation to what has happened or what will be done, which is very frustrating.
