W.C. had embolization of whole rt liver lobe Aug 19 and was released from hospital a week ago. It seems like he has been going downhill since coming home. Since procedure he has been disoriented, sleeping most of the time, very poor appetite, etc. Sunday, we took him to ER, thinking he was dehydrated & he was. Blood tests showed liver enzymes and kidney function normal, an improvement from when we left hospital. RBC and Hemoglobin are low, but platelets are 212, higher than they have been in a long time. The Dr. changed his pain meds, because I thought that might be a contributing factor, but he is down to 1 Norco 7.5 per day.

Have any of you had a similar problem follow embo? Any help appreciated.
