Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Generally yes. There are some other criterias such as San francisco which is exntended and involves more patients then milans crietris since even patients with 8cm large tumors may be capable for transplantations. However, if there are 7 lesions then the benefit of transplantations is questioable and i would say this would be useless unfortunately.
Wish you good health. Kindly regards

Hi, My mother (56 years old) was diagnosed with decompensated liver cirrhosis in Sep 12. She was hospitalized for 3 weeks and then she is currently taking diuretics, lactulose medicine & low sodium diet. She has certainly improved but doctors are saying she has to undergo liver transplant as her liver is damaged and the improvement is not so good. She is in regular medical check up and the stage of liver cirrhosis is Child C - MELD 11. As liver transplant is a complicated one, my family is worried about her condition. We were looking for an alternate medicine and we have just come across this in internet (link below). It is very encouraging and give a new hope as they promise good results without any side effects. Can someone suggest me if we can go for these tablets, will it be a good idea at this stage? Please give your opinion on this. WWW.WWWW.WW WWW.WWWW.WW Thanks.
