My mother is currently on the list for a liver transplant, and these past 7 months have not been pretty and I can only expect more and more hospital visits. She has almost lost all of her muscles due to muscle wasting and her body is now so thin that her skins tears very easily. I have been trying so hard to find a way to get her strength back so if she can get a transplant, she will be bale to sustain the surgery. If anyone knows of anyways to get her strength back and some more meat on her bones please help me! Her ascites make her stomach so large and bloated that her appetite is very small and also has been inhibiting her from moving about as she normally would. Again, please help me and most importantly my mother!View Thread
