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?
