Hi, thanks for the query.
Hepatitis "C" is not not a serious disease till it infect liver( Cirrhosis & Liver carcinoma), hence you have mentioned that your's mother liver has infected, what it means? Please specify as above mentioned.
Before diagnosis, I think your's mother has gone through courses of many medicines and due to some disease and some drugs she might have develops mouth ulcers.
1. Improve the general condition of your mother at once as BP=120/80. PULSE=80-85,Respiration 16-20 (24), Temp37 f.
Maintain these parameters for 3-4 days under the supervision of a doctor.
For platelets (30,000) infuse a bottle of platelets. if need two three.
Now again try interferon and rabvirin after the consultation of some doctor.
Still there is not improvement and stage is very dangerous , please get liver transplant. This is last treatment. Best wishes for your beloved mother and good luck for speedy recovery.
Dr. HET.
