If it was over pruned, there may not be much you can do for it beyond giving it good TLC and hope for the best. Over pruning a plant can send it into shock and that sounds like what may be happening here.

Make sure it is getting enough water and you mat want to try a dose of sugar water to give it a boost (but only do it once as too much will kill it). Fertilize it with a balanced fertilizer.

As a precaution, treat the plant with a fungicide, just to be on teh safe side.
