In brief: FEW OPTIONS

Your hepatologist (liver specialist) would be the best person to decide what would be the best treatment for you.
Options include: b-blocker to decrease portal pressure, diuretics (lasix/aldactone) to control ascites and in certain cases tips (transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt). Best recommendation is to avoid anything that may further damage the liver.
