You definately want to avoid tylenol. That is probably why your liver is having problems. I'm still looking. The narcotics are all metabolized by the liver, at least the ones I've checked so far, I checked on morphine, oxycodone, tramadol, codeine and fentanyl.
The liver filters everything, really no way around it. You can try topical applications like Salon Pas heat emitting pads, they helped me and I'm always in 10+ pain. Drink lots of water every day to cleanse your system.
