Storyline

Each year, thousands of cirrhotic patients are affected by hepatic encephalopathy (HE). It impacts their family and friends. Despite the seriousness of the condition, many patients are not receiving the treatment and support they need. Director Cynthia Wade tells these stories that might otherwise not be heard. WRESTLING THE MONSTER: LIVING WITH HEPATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY follows 4 patients suffering from HE. A matriarch and military veteran in California now finds herself housebound. In New Jersey, a beloved wife and mother saved by a transplant still struggles with lasting effects. A father in rural Oklahoma flounders with a condition he can't comprehend. And a formerly high-functioning mother in Florida finds herself isolated and a shell of who she once was. What will HE destroy next for these patients? Written by Anonymous
