Customer Question
My spouse has cirrohsis(?)...

My spouse has cirrohsis(?) of the liver. He is scheduled for a TPCHC test. I am unable to find any thing on this. What is this test>

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Mainly weight loss. He has been treated for this for around 2 yrs.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I know of. He was first diagnosed with fatty liver. Then cirrhosis.

Does it go by another name? I’m not familiar with that test. What’s the purpose of the test? Is it for liver transplant?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
