Hi, my son is 42 and has stage 4 cirrhosis plus Hep C. We are waiting to see if he is eligible for the Hep C treatment. He goes every other week for paracentesis the drain 11 litres or 2 quarts each time. Recently he has had sever cramping in his hands and feet to the point of it bringing him to tears. Also suffering sever pain in his stomach and right side when laying down. He is getting very little sleep because of this. Any suggestions on how to help with the cramping and for him to get comfortable enough to sleep. He has been hospitalized several times for blood transfusions and once for H.E.. He was rushed to the hospital for surgery on a hernia in which his small bowel got caught. He was in a H.E. coma for a week. With high doses of lactulose he finally came round. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank Soonie
