Hello, omhind1981,
Your father is very fortunate that he recovered from liver coma,
and also survived bleeding from the enlarged veins in the esophagus
and stomach.I am glad that his blood count is good.
The liver ultrasound shows changes of cirrhosis and he also has
gallstones.I take it that he is not having symptoms related to
stones and at this time he may not need surgery. He may if he
has an acute attack. He really needs to control his blood sugar.
He may have to consult with a diabetes specialist for proper
dosage and type of insulin.
If his Bilirubin levels are not high and his platelet count is good
along with normal kidney tests, his prognosis is good in the
near term.If he has any further massive bleeding, then it is
I wish him well.
