As I may have mentioned this before, I went through TIPPS in May 2018, my liver has been functioning as good as it can: low MELD score only 9, no HE.
My doctors said not to take medicine and to cancel all my appointments for banding. The hepatologist said to deal with possible HE with memory check ups and brain function tests; he suggested to download for free and app called Stroop Test. My results do not indicate HE.
My husband, in the other hand, likes to prevent brain damage due to higher amounts of ammonia in my blood and, put me on low daily dose of lactulose- he is an internal medicine physician I must mention.
Two days a go, we decided to stop the medication because I may not need it; however, today I experienced a strange feeling of impatience and anger for things that normally I would be able to filter out; additionally, the test on the app states I am still within the acceptable perimeters.
For those of you who have experience HE, is anger part of the symptoms? What has been your experience with HE?
I don't want to ask my hubby, because I don't want him to worry. I will ask also the same questions to my hepatologist on my next appointment in November.
