My brother, who is only 52 had contracted Hep. C when he was in Vietnam. The disease became active around 8-10 years ago. In 2005 he received a liver transplant and was successful, meaning there was no rejection, however the new liver came with a virus, and the Hep. C came back with a vengance. He was in the Hospital this past weekend, suffering from being extremely jaundice. His stomach is huge and he is suffering from amonia build up which causes him to hallucinate. His blood counts were very low, so they gave him 2 pints of blood to raise his counts which helped, and then sent him home. I don't know what kind of time he has left. I would like to know what to expect in these final stages of cirrhosis. Thanks, SSReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
