Hi Meeks & welcome to the site. I think that with cirrhosis you might have a hard time finding a med that is tolerable with the exception of maybe methadone. I hate referring you to that drug, because I was put on it for liver problems that couldn't be figured out, & altho it did help the pain, I really hated it because it made me a zombie. It is suppose to be easier on the liver.
If you ever decide to take it try to keep the dose at a minimum for your pain. I too suffer from many of your conditions, the fibro, OA, IBS. the chrontic diarrhea & constipation is the IBS. I don't believe talk therapy is the answer for your problems as suggested by another poster, but just my opinion. You need to find the right doctor which would be a lover specialist & a Pain Management doctor. I wish you the best...
