Nage, hello and welcome to the forum. I am sorry to hear that your father is so ill. I also have hep C, diagnosed in '93. The thing about this disease is that one has it for decades before it becomes symptomatic. I know I contracted it in '68 or '69. If your dad is unable to take the standard treatment for it, and is not a candidate for transplant, he will continue to decline. All they can do is treat the symptoms of ascites and encephalopathy. He will probably sleep a lot and this is normal for someone with liver disease.
If you will go to the Hepatitis Resources folder at the top of the page, there is a lot of good info in there that will give you some idea of what to expect. Is your dad seeing a hepatologist (liver specialist?) That is recommended. If his doctor feels he has less than a year to live, then he can be referred to Hospice. However, at that point he cannot receive anything that is considered "treatment." He would receive comfort measures only. Since you are concerned about him having pain, they would make sure that he doesn't. However, it may be too soon for that just yet.
I also recommend that you read some of the older posts here to give you an idea of what to expect. You will certainly receive a lot of support here.
