Can you tell me some information about end stage liver failure/end stage liver cirrhosis?

Can vary: Cirrhosis can lead to complications like fluid build up in your abdomen (ascites), confusion (hepatic encephalopathy), varices that can bleed, and liver cancer (HCC) as well as easy bruising, fatigue and jaundice (elevated bilirubin) can occur. You need to be followed by a liver doctor who can manage and control the above signs/symptoms and discuss liver transplantation.
