Thanks for replying with reports

I think you need to understand your health problem and no body has explained it to you properly. I would like to explain certain things about your health issue so that it will help you

1. You are suffering from liver failure.
2. Liver is the main organ responsible for protein synthesis in our body, protein helps in keeping water within in blood vessel. Since the liver has failed in your case there is decreased amount of proteins which is causing accumulation of water in the legs, inside the abdomen, lungs ( which explains the pleural effusion=water accumatiln in the lungs), etc
3. Some amount of protein should be taken along with the diet, like b protein supplements, this will help reduce some amount of leg swelling in you
4. Liver transplant is another good option, please approach BGS global
Hospital Gastro enterology dept, Bangalore for an opinion
5. You are receiving appropriate treatment for your current problem

I hope I have answered your query, if you have any further ones please let me know I will be happy to reply
