    Hi all,
    My husband ,who has Cirrhosis, fell down the steps back-wards early this AM. He didn't break any bones but was skinned up pretty bad. As most of you know,he never drank in his life. His legs are so unstable that he falls easy. When I got up to the bathroom,he was at the foot of the stairs on the floor and couldn't get up. I called my step son and he came down immediately. Well I had a Cochlear Implant on 8/9/07 and I am not well myself.
    Does anybody have any idea as to why he falls so easy? Is it the Cirrhosis itself causing it or is it the medication he takes?
    Would appreciate any help here.
    Hugs Shirley

    No he isn't dizzy at all but his legs are just like rubber he said. This all happened in the middle of the night and I am deaf and didn't hear him fall or call me. I got up to the bathroom and there he was at the foot of the steps. i can't even hear to call anyone but I told Jim,if I call just get down here quick and he did,bless his heart.

    Yes we will take him to the Dr but there really isn't much to be done.
