Many patients get involved in The Liver Meeting each year. In 2011, right after my liver totally failed. Someone in a forum mentioned that the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) meeting was being held in Boston. I was SO hungry for information and wondered if it were worth it to attend. Well, I didn’t that year because of another varices bleedout. But I always wanted to go, to hear first hand how I could continue to live with end stage liver failure.
