I think you should post this in the Hepatitis C forum.  That forum seems to be extremely active with very knowledgeble people.

I take it your daughter is not on the transplant list? Also, when the liver deteriorates to end stage, ammonia builds up on the brain & causes many memory and other problems, have heard of hallucinations from others.

I just recently had problems with high ammonia  buildup. I had to go to the ER the day after Xmas. I had stopped taking my Lactulose prescription - it keeps the colon cleaned out and the drug Xifaxan gets rid of the bacteria that originates in the colon and causes the ammonia buildup. Brain fog from the ammonia can cause you to do all sorts of things and not know what you're doing.
If she gets on the medications your daughter won't have this problem.
God Bless. I hope 2012 will be a better year for all of us.

My daughter had a transplant but much to my dismay it failed she went through hell and back and i hope no one else ever has to watch this. My daughter passed away on Jan 18, 2012. I can only say she is out of pain now. But my heart is broken
