Is it a good idea to get a second opinion for my wife's Hepatitis B. She's suffering right now from jaundice; nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and is very weak for a few weeks now. Today we were told that the biopsy showed some collapsing of the liver. We were told that if the Hepatitis B medicine doesn't work or the liver can not rejuvinate itself we will be getting a transplant. Another problem is that she had a bile duct injury years ago that was repaired but I wonder if that could be causing problems as well as the Hep B?:mad:
