My husband has hepatic encepathalopathy, and now cancer. What is your prognosis? He is on transplant list at Penn. The neurological symptoms depress me so much, I fear for his future. He also is very argumentative, very cold at times, & sleeps a lot, even though he takes his meds.

I am a 23 y.o. male that went into the hospital last summer with all the symptoms of HE. I had high ammonia levels in my blood cause dizziness, confusion, numbness of my body and couldnt remember where I was or who I was. I also was in and out for about 1 month of the hospital which also included being induced into a coma for 5 days. I was treated the final stay and prescribed Lactulose. I was never properly diagnosed with HE but I was wondering is HE something that is cured and gone or something that is with me for life?

I have had recent blood samples and urine and stool cultures done. I had typhoid which took months to clear whilst I am in India. I have recently been passing what I know to be part of the superficial intestine (I had a dog who died from parvovirus and he passed the same thing just before his death and which I showed to his vet!) I recently had some diarheoa but not severe. Now, however, just 5 days after the results came back normal, I have a really severe sore throat, chest, back, neck and shoulders. My arms are sore to move and to touch, and covered in mosquito bites. I have severe pain in between my shoulder blades for which I am taking continuous pain killers. My fever is 102 and up to 104, for the past 2 days. I feel like I have severe flu and cannot do anything, even moving my fingers is causing pain!!! Can I have malaria even if my tests came back showing nothing abnormal? My chest hurts to cough, so does my back.

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Our family is all taking Malarone as we went to an island with the potential for malaria. We have all come down with various rashes. One on the back of the thigh (painful and two red stripes), the others behind the knees and in the armpits. This has never happened to us before. Could this be from the medication, sun, or something like ringworm or scabies?
