Suffering from portal vein thrombosis and cirrhosis of the liver?

There may be help. Depending on how much of your portal vein is thrombosed and how bad your cirrhosis is, there is a chance that the vein can be reopened and a TIPS procedure be performed. An MRI is usually done to help evaluate the possibility. Have your doctor refer you to an Interventional Radiologist who performs these procedures.

Common. It is not a too uncommon finding in patients with cirrhosis. If an acute thrombosis anti-coagulation may be warranted.
Anti coagulation. Treatment is anti coagulation but with cirrhosis you need full evaluation by a liver specialist.
