its been over a year since we have heard from you. sorry it has to be this way. I remember you had cleared hep c, and had compensated cirrhosis. I looked back and saw that you had portal hypertension, and varices at the time you reached SVR. im so sorry it went the wrong way.
Im not the person who has been thru the evaluation process. But I am going thru it with my twin brother. he developed liver cancer. He is currently getting chemo embolization, and treatment to get one of his tumors under control.
Hopefully your diet, and use of diuretics will help with your discomfort. I would ask your dr about how much water is appropriate for you.
Hopefully some of the others will see this and jump in. its been really slow around here lately with, hep c easily treated. I check the forum most days, and if I can help you research anything, or be a listener, just ask.
