My husband was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and kidney cancer. Since then it's been a whirlwind of appointments, emotions and frustration. The hoapital booked him in to have his kidney removed just before christmas but the night before as they were booking him in to the ward the surgeon read the anaesthetists report and decided it was too risky because he had portal hypertension so he was sent home.
The liver consultant then decided that he may be suitable for a TIPS procedure in a specialist hospital 150 miles away. He's just had the op and that's where we are now. Just wondering if anyone got any experience of this procedure. Reading online the side effects can be horrendous but no info given and questions diverted.
