I cannot find a doc who cares about quality of life.! Part of what I need is pain management and everyone I ask treats me like a drug addict. I have chronic pain for multiple reasons and get told to take tylenol. of all things with a bad liver, tylenol?! Also, how do I know when my disease is progressing?

    I'm very new to this liver thing as well. My pain specialist informed me that Tylenol is actually safe as long as it's taken in moderation. I know with the way pain meds are seen anymore it's very hard to find true relief without jumping through hoops. I wish you the best.

    I have a lot of pain as well and my doctor tells me that the liver causes no pain. can you believe that they treat me like I'm crazy when I complain about pain underneath my ribs about foggy headedness dizziness being tired all the time not being able to sleep. the doctor says this has nothing to do with the liver from what I read on the internet all I have and more is from the liver. Does anyone else have these problems what about shortness of breath that is something that is new to me

      see a gastroenterologist. They will monitor your condition and can possibly help with the brain fog and other symptoms. Unfortunately they don’t know much about the liver.

      find a new Dr. They can help those symptoms with meds, not 100% but at least a better quality of life.

    That's a lie. Everyone I know and have talked to including myself says liver cirrhosis is painful.

      mine hasn't been too painful, but I have a preexisting back and leg injuries that bring me a lot of pain. My doctor says medical marijuana is completely safe for my liver and that is my pain management

    I I do see the gastroenterologist I also see the liver transplant clinic in Memphis. But no one will answer any questions I get the same answer over and over again one problem at a time and never get an answer even for that one problem I am so so confused and angry that I can't get help😥

      I spoke to my GI about memory and extreme exhaustion. He say it was from a built up of ammonia in my system. Prescribed lactolose however it is brutal on my intestines. Decided to go to an alternative medical doctor to see if change in diet would help. Started a strict vegan diet 4 weeks ago. Still in a wait and see

    I use medical marijuana for my pain management. My liver doctor said it was the safest thing for pain, and CBD really helps with my chronic back pain and bad leg. Idk what the laws are where you are, but in Ohio it is legal for medical use, and it really works for me.
