In 1992, five years after achieving sobriety, Bob was diagnosed with hepatitis C. As is so often the case, he was probably infected with the virus a decade or two earlier without ever experiencing symptoms. Bob admits that his lifestyle is likely to have contributed to his liver disease. Whatever the cause, Bob’s liver disease continued to worsen over the following years. Bob attempted interferon treatment for his hepatitis C, but it was ineffective and made him feel depressed. As the disease progressed he developed cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy, a complication of cirrhosis that causes dementia-like symptoms. In 2006, Bob was placed on the liver transplant list at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts. It wasn’t until 4 years later, on March 5, 2010, that Bob received his new liver. Since first diagnosed in 1992, Bob’s life has certainly changed: he re-married, became a drug and alcohol counselor, and works at a halfway house. He is an active member of the Patient Advisory Committee for both the local and national divisions of the American Liver Foundation.
