What Should I Expect?

My mother has had Hep C for years. A year and half she was diagnosed with beginning stages of cirrhosis. Now she has the blotchy skin, confusion, high levels of ammonia. At first I thought she had early on set of dementia. The her dr. told her Wednesday that  she had hepatic encephalopathy. What should I be expecting the next step to be?

Is there some reason your mother hasn't treated her Hep C?  I did.  I think you could get better info if you posted this in Cirrhosis of the liver form.

Give it a try... Best to You

She has tried three different types of treatment. She has went through chemo twice. The doctors told her in 2010 that there was not much else they could do for her. The last round of shots that I was giving her was working, but she could not take the blood builders to build back up her blood so they had to stop.
