Re: Portal vein embolization for liver regeneration followed by staged hep
I had the portal vein embolization when we scheduled the resection back in March. It was to give the liver a chance to grow on the "good" side. I'm still waiting for the resection.... but I was told by my surgeon that as the left side shrinks and dies off, the right side grows to accommodate. I would like to see what my liver looks like by now....
