My doctor wants to do a TIPS placement. I'm a little nervous about encephalopathy. Will I still be able to drive, read a novel, get around on the subway? Has anyone else had this surgery done? I would like to hear about your experience.


Hi, Kim, this search should help you connect with members who have had the TIPS procedure:

I hope you are having a good day.

Thank you for the link. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I could not get it to work.

Sorry, Kim, I'm not sure -- it is working for me. But you can just type "TIPS procedure" in the search box at the upper right corner of the page, and that will take you there.
