Are the any women with liver disease that are or were using HRT?

I've been using Angeliq for my hot flashes. It's been very helpful for the flushes and helps with water retention I addition to my mood. Now that my liver is compromised I'm rethinking it. I hate to give it up because I feel so much better with it. I was wondering if anyone uses patches which aren't broken down through the liver? Are they safe to use with fibrosis?
