I was diagnosed 8/2/19. I am had been a heavy drinker 4 too long and it caught up to me. I had all the symptoms. Grip weakness, cognitive, speech memory loss. The gambit. I hoped for better prognosis. My cognitive, muscle strength, brain function came back in 6 months due to great memory coach, speech, physical, occupational therapists. I feel great compared to 2 years ago. Now focus on Diet, Lactulose, Xifaxan 4 life. My Nutritionists are great. My Doctors (5). So eat right take meds see neurologist and psychiatrist monthly. Get baseline ultrasounds, ammonia levels, memory, psych evals. I hope to be 1 of 23% lasting more than 3 years. Prognosis sucks.57 and I want more time with my Grand Kids. Hope the same for all.
