Received heart cath. Internal bleeding. Went into liver shock. Received blood. Is this rare?

My mother recieved a heart cath about a month ago and internally bleed throughout her body. Her blood pressure dropped. She was put into a medically induced coma . If that is even said right. She went into liver shock. Her kidneys shut down. She was losing as much blood as they put in. In all she recieved over 40 pints of blood. She had a second surgery out of nowhere. Her stitch in the artery would not hold. He grafted another piece of artery on. She survived that surgery when they said that it was possible for her to die. She is still in the hospital but out of I.C.U. Her kidney function may return and she is eating now.. My question is....Is this a rare thing?

if we are concerned with common peopole then it is a rare case but we are concerned with cardiac patient who comes to a cardiac surgeon then it no more remain too rare, these days aortoplasty, arterial grafting repair and even barbiturate indued brain comma are done to save the life of patient on the the operating table.i think you should hold hope and faith on your treating doctors after and all they are expert of what they are doing for saving life.
wish you all the best .
