Thanbey.....first let me say that I was very impressed with your answer. the original question in this post was the actual symptoms of end-stage liver disease. I think I can offer a couple that weren't mentioned here:

ascites (fluid in the abdominal cavity....someone asked this above...the fluid is not in the stomach, but in the cavity that houses all of the abdominal organs)

generalized edema


distended esophageal veins (manifests as trouble swallowing or a huge bleed if the veins break)


gynecomastia (a man developing breast tissue)

spider nevi (small red marks all over the body which represent distended capillary beds)

day night reversal (the patient is awake at night, sleeps during the day)

palmar erythema (red palms)

sudden loss in the desire to smoke if one smoked before

confusion (this comes from the decompensated version)
female type body hair pattern in males

caput medusa (distended veins around the belly button)

generalized pruritis (itching)

There are tons more, but that should be enough for now! :)
