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.

tx got it and working on it.  It is hard to wait for translation of certain parts of these lab values.  Is it ok to ask questions about lab values on MedHelp?  I'm new to this.  tx for your posts and I really do appreciate it as my mental state is not up to par.  It's like I have a built in forgetor.  take care friend kelly

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!
