Dear Anon,

I'm sorry you have been diagnosed with Hepatitis B,C, and D and that you're in so much pain constantly. The best person to give you something for pain would be your doctor-- keep in mind that certain medications are contraindicated with cirrhosis because they are metabolized by the liver. With this being said, the only person that can tell you what you can take to ease your pain is your doctor.

Please let us know what s/he recommends,

Dear Anonymous,

A blood clot looks like a chunk of coagulated blood. The best way I could describe it it is you were to take a teaspoon of strawberry jelly and drop it on your plate, that's what a clot looks like. 

Hope that helps,
