I have questions about Hepatic Encephalopathy
My husband has been diagnosed with stage 4 liver disease. We are waiting for an appointment to see if he can be put on the transplant list. Prior to his diagnosis and even after a hospitalization, he has signs of HE. Hallucinations, personality changes, irritability and impulsive behavior. He no longer has hallucinations but he still has the others on some level despite being on lactulose. Question about HE – Is there any other ways to treat this besides lactulose? After transplant (if he is eligible and if we get one) will these symptoms and changes go away? Is therapy helpful for HE? As a caregiver how do I handle the anger, moods, impulsivity?
