KellyAnn, welcome to the forum. I had never heard of liver strep, either. I hope that you are now clear of that. I have hep C (diagnosed in '93), cirrhosis (diagnosed in '07) and have survived liver cancer. Are you seen by a hepatologist? Have you ever had treatment for your hep C? It was offered to me at Mayo, despite my cirrhosis and liver cancer history. You might want to make an appt. with a transplant center for possible evaluation. Nobody can really say how much longer your have to live, as every case is different. However, you can improve the situation you are in by getting enough sleep and rest, eliminating red meat from your diet, and eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Drink spring or filtered water and green tea. Lower your stress level. Absolutely no alcohol or drugs that aren't prescribed, of course.
The cramps are possibly caused by lack of potassium. Are you on diuretics?
I suggest you read some older posts here and also the information in the folder at the top of the forum page, Hepatitis Resources, for more information.
