PhD Submission Problem

I have just submitted my thesis but am really concerned about it. I found out 2 weeks ago that my lead supervisor had left the university without telling me and that I had to submit within two weeks or get a new supervisor, and pay fees for the full year. As I was at the end of an extension due to my partner’s serious illness and my funding had ended I already had to go to work full time. Luckily my employer let me have two weeks off and I scrabbled together a final analysis chapter and intro and conclusion, but I’m really worried as no one saw the intro and conclusion and I got only minimal feedback on my last chapter. I barely had time to proof read, have already found a number of mistakes, and have realised that one appendix is missing. Any advice how to approach my viva? I don’t think I’m going to get much if any support from my remaining supervisor, not just because I am not in the city any more but because most of my thesis is well outside his area and my lead supervisor had suggested I only showed some chapters to him.
