might have renal embolization soon

I am 39 yrs old female with Tuberous Sclerosis and because of my condition I have multiple AMLs of both kidneys and solid tumors that could possibly be cancerous. I was wondering what to expect pre-op and post-op if my doctor decides to do symbolization. I also wonder if symbolization would be wise for the solid tumors or if they should be removed. There is that chance that I may lose a kidney if the doctor decided a partial nephrectomy isn't going to do any good. I don't know but I think he may try to remove the tumor. It is large so I don't know if removal would require laprascopic or open surgery.
