Finally got listed at 38, after 14 years with a Hemochromatosis/Iron Excess Induced Liver Cirrhosis.
I also have HE (covert/minimal) since from when I can remember however it doesn’t seem minimal, quite often I forget if Ive administered Insulin (T1 diabetic), have trouble calculating simple math and general mental clarity is all over the place.
I’m aware that these are common signs of HE whoever despite being chronically confused I know where I am and can articulate pretty well albeit only in short sentences.
One of my main concerns is that these symptoms will persist post transplant and that I won’t be able to return to a high functioning role in IT/Finance once I’ve fully recovered (fingers crossed).
Has anyone experienced these symptoms and can provide insight as to post transplant recovery and HE reversibility as there are many conflicting pubmeds in circulation?
Wishing you all a positive 2020 x
