I've been diagnosed with hep b liver cirrhosis by likely vertical transmission since 2015. Hep B i've known about since age 19 some 40 years. Since then i was put on Tenofovir but it was causing side effects namely Proteinuria so now i've been put on Baraclude ( entecavir) about 1 month, seen consultant last week to see if these were ok and now says i likely have ammonia in my blood so has prescribed lactulose also. Does this mean i am going from compensated cirrosis to decompensated cirrhosis. I am also now sleeping 14-15 hours a day and very fatigued. I am worried this seems to be progressing quite fast and feel i don't have many years left in me, only in 2014 they said i had hep b and a bit of a fatty liver no cirrhosis. I'd appreciate any comments.
