Doctor may advice for liver transplant.. I need the information urgently....Hope you will help me. Thank you!!!
i also had cirrhosis 1 year ago, of course there is, it is very important that it is compensated to regress otherwise you can manage to stop it
first of all she must take hbv antivirals immediately: tenofovir+entecavir if kidneys function is ok other wise entecavir only
hepatitistechnology can help regress cirrhosis faster and make liver function stable (google hepatitistechnologies)
please post all tests results so we can suggest what it is the best
it is also very very important to find a very expert liver specialist, not the one you have now
all these drugs must be started immediately, if too expensive there are generics:
tenofovir: tavin emcure or tenvir cipla
if compensated entecavir will regress cirrhosis by 3-6 years, hepatitistechnologies might fasten this process, for me it took less than a year to start fibrosis regression
the combo tenofovir+entecavir will prevent hbv resistance that in cirrhosis state might be deadly.during this combo kidneys function must be checked every week at start and every month after the first month.this is because cirrhosis also damages kidneys and they might not be able to accept tenofovir
for example my kidneys cannot stand tenofovir so i made entecavir+nitazoxanide combo to prevent resistance and to lower hbsag
