Hi everyone, its been a year, from I lost my father from Hepatic Encephalopathy. Its been a rough year, I don't think i'll ever get over the severity of what I had to see that day. Just to top the that off, I lost my second daddy (grandfather) on the 29th of August there to. He passed away pretty quickly from liver cancer. It was yet another horrifc ordeal to watch, i sat with both my dad and grand dad until their last breaths.
My grandfathers liver cancer was due to having Hemocromotosis. My grandfather was diagnosed in his 50s by then i would say his organs were damaged, as he was accused of being a drinker because of having a fatty liver and my mum was tested also and she carries the gene also. My question is, 'Should me and my siblings be screened for it? and if so do 'do we go to our GPs?
