As has been mentioned before, because you have Cirrhosis, you need to be under the care of a hepatologist who is experienced in both Hep C and Cirrhosis.

Lab test translations are often requested on MedHelp, we will do our best to translate them for you based on the information you provide :)

Yes, I am having Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) for my latest liver tumor on this coming Tuesday at UCSF. I will be in the hospital staying on the Liver Transplant Recovery floor after the procedure for about a day.

Thanks for the well wishes!
