This storyboard does not have a description.
Adam has had Hepititis C for roughly 12 years now, today he has a check up.
Ugh my eyes are starting to look yellow, my legs are starting to swell and my hands are red! Can this get any worse?
Okay Adam based on your symptoms we're going to order a liver function test to see if we can rule out cirrhosis.
Nurse Beckie can you please call Adam into my office, we need to discuss his diagnosis of Cirrhosis.
Of course doctor, I'll go get him.
Adam, you have Cirrhosis which is a chronic liver disease that normally occurs from hepatitis or lots of alcohol drinking.
Why don't you go home and rest up and I'll see you back in a month for another liver function test and to see how your meds are doing!
Your treatment options can range from self care of avoiding alcohol to taking ammonia blocker and in a serve case a liver transplant.
Okay! Will do I'll go home and clean out my fridge.
Adam cleaned out his fridge and has avoided alcohol which has helped him with his Cirrhosis, but the doctor has ordered a liver transplant for precaution. The End
