My Mom had her liver surgery last Tuesday. She is recoverying and her vitals are good, she is in ICU waiting for another bed to become available on another floor. She has very hi levels of Ammnoia in her liver, which have caused her to have personality and behavior changes, confusion and tremors in her hands.
The Drs are giving her laxatives to flush ammonia out of her system. The Drs say this is normal for someone who has had 40-50% of her liver removed, along with her age 72.
Has anyone every witnessed or encountered this.
I look forward to any responses.
