Hi,
 
MY MOTHER HAS BEEN DIGONOSED WITH HEP C ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. SHE IS NOW FINALLY SEEING THE EFFECTS I THINK. HOWEVER I AM CONCERNED IT HAS GONE TO CIRROHSIS. THE SYMPTOMS SHE IS HAVING FIT MORE WITH STAGE B CIRROHSIS. HER DOCTOR IS A QUACK AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET HER TO GO THE HOSPITAL AND SHE WON'T GO. SHE HAS LEG EDEMA AND SHE CAN NOT KEEP ANYTHING DOWN. SHE IS CONSTANTLY SLEEPING AND BECOMING FORGETFULL (CALLING PEOPLE WRONG NAMES, HAVING A CONVERSATION AND THEN FORGETING WHAT IT WAS ABOUT). THEY HAVE HER ON A WATER PILL WHICH IS MAKING HER URINATE CONSTANTLY SO THERE IS A POSSIBILITY SHE IS BECOMING DEHYDRATED. SHE HAS HAD A LIVER BIOPSY AND RESULTS (SHE IS SAYING ARE HEP C 2ND STAGE BUT HER SYMPTOMS ARE FITTING. ALL THE DOCTOR CAN TELL HER TO DO IS REST SINCE SHE IS REFUSING TO BE ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL. PLEASE HELP ME.

No matter what, you have to get medical treatment for your mother.

Hep C can and will seriously damage her liver. The symptoms you describe could be related to liver disease. Only a thorough exam, including blood tests can tell for sure.

I also, strongly, recommend that you insist on seeing the results of the biopsy and, if necessary, change doctors. Is there a liver treatment center in your area?

I wish you luck. It sounds like you've got a lot of work ahead of you.
