My dad has been 6 months free of alchohol after a varices bleed inwhich he near lost his life. Few months after discharge i noticed alot of behaviour changes with his mind. It wasnt long after that, that he started taking seizures. He was put onto lactaluose and rifixamin and diagnosed with HE. Also his cirrohsis had progressed to decomponsated. Even with all the treatment for HE nothing has stopped the episodes from coming. He literally gets 2 days break before another starts, they cant find what is triggering them. So on Sat i got the call to say he slipped into a coma and was being brought to ICU, he is still unresponsive. He was meant to be assessed for a transpant and that is the only treatment for both conditions but because the HE wont slack off, its ruining his chance for a transplant. Has anyone faced anything like this with HE. The consultant told me that in his time, its the most severe case hes seen.
