My feet are swelled up, as well are my feet are numb and i have blisters on my feet, some of my blisters busted , I had on socks and they where soaked with blood and brown fluid. This happened due to walking on them maybe to much. So I was just wondering what could be wrong.

I have a friend who experienced ascites and swelling of the legs and feet - had lost alot of weight over short period of time and looked as if he lost muscle mass. Took him to hospital and diagnosed with Stage 4 liver disease. It has been about 5 months and he looks good and appears perfectly normal and mobile. What do you believe his life expectancy will be? Don t know resluts of any lab work...
