I'm 45 yr old woman.9 mos ago I got hepA that progressed HE stage4 I came out of it and I've been living clean since. What is my life expectancy?

In general, hepatic encephalopathy is a bad prognostic sign but if you don't have serious chronic liver disease, it is potentially reversible. Your hepatologist can refine your prognosis for you. ...Read more
