Just wanted to let you know something,
If you are alchoholic and had previous digestion troubles, or can see that your belly is a little more swollen in terms of other parts of your body, please go for an immediate check up.
It is not necessary that you will have vomitting, portal vein pain or jaundice in the initial stage of Hep C or Cirrhosis or Hepatoma(liver cancer).
My Dad passed away just after 5 days of diagnosis, and he never had any symptom ...other than a little swollen belly-and I never ever would like to happen it to anyone else!

Thank you Sonia, for sharing that warning. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father. I lost mine also and I know how difficult this time can be.
With Warm regards,

I was just wondering what your father had.
