My mom was diagnosed with Hep-C last year. Shortly after she was diagnosed with Cancer of her thyroid. She had her thyroid removed and the cancer was isolated in the thyroid (did not spread) the day after she found out she would be fine she found out her father had terminal cancer. She has not done anything to treat her Hep-C. She is ignoring that she has it. She is drinking alcohol still and this makes me so mad because she is not an alcoholic she could stop drinking but she is in denial of the Hep-C that she won't do anything to take care of herself. I am really worried about her she has been through a lot this year. She is the type of person that will take care of everyone BUT herself! Her father is still alive and I think taking care of him is putting more of a toll on her body. She is experiencing fatigue, anxiety, and depression. She is scared to start treatment for Hep-C since she learned that half the time it doesn't work. She said what is the point of going through treatment when it won't work, but if thats the case shouldn't she do other things to care for her liver? Such as not drinking any alcohol anymore? Any advice on how I can help my mother or how I can better understand the options would be greatly appreciated.
