Initially, there may general symptoms such as tiredness, lethargy, yellowness of eyes and urine (mild jaundice), swollen feet, excessive itching and anemia (low hemoglobin). In more advanced stages, the patient may have several life threatening complications such as blood vomiting, bloated stomach due to water (ascites) in the abdomen which may develop serious infection, mental deterioration and coma, deep jaundice and kidney impairment.
