My husband has HepC and our health insurance denied him one of the new meds for it, he also has cirrhosis and the med the insurance approved our Doctor says he can't take because it would do more harm so I'm praying the one he can take that the doctor can get it approved somehow. I am trying to educate myself about what's in his future with all of this and I think he has symptoms of HE now. We go sit down with our Doctor on Jult 19th 2016 to find out just what we are dealing with and if he should be put on a transplant list now. I'm just worried, he is still trying to work but he was sent home a couple of times because they said he was not acting right and they could not risk him being there so since then his iron infusion Doctor sent a letter shorten his hours from 12 hrs days to 8 hrs days and for him to be on light duty for 6-8 weeks, but it seems to be getting to him even doing this.... I have Ulcerative Colitis so all this stress is starting to make me have flare-ups and I can't be sick because I need to take care of him. But I think my husband thinks I'm trying to tell him what to do when I try to help him and it makes me cry. He stopped drinking on May 19th and he was a heavy drinker but then he started drinking that ODoul's non-alcohol beer but I don't think he should drink that either so he got ill so I told him I would ask the doctor about it when we go see him. Sorry this is so long, please forgive me but I need to hear from others that's maybe dealing with something like this.. Thank you.
