Response from Dr. McGovern
This will need to be carefully assessed by your liver specialist since your stage of liver disease is unclear to me. You will also probably need to have some diuretics if you are having problems with water retention in your legs. You may also want to discuss diet with your physician to see if you should be on salt restriction.
Stay away from alcohol and be certain to be vaccinated against any of the other hepatitis viruses HAV and HBV.
