Can liver dysfunctioning be cured after a quad bypass surgery?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the query.
Liver has multifactorial roles to play in human body. It has so many functions in the body that all its actions are yet to be understood by modern science. Liver failure leads to a very fast deterioration in functioning of other body organs, known as multi-organ failure.
In your brother’s case, it seems that his liver is not functioning completely because of cirrhosis.
Because of improper functioning of liver, he is in metabolic coma. High level of Ammonia can be one of the reasons of metabolic coma.
Ideally, for such a major surgery like bypass, all the tests are done including Liver Function Tests and Abdominal Ultrasonography. So if he had liver impairment, ideally such operations should be postponed.
Also as you described, he had kidney infection before the surgery. That was one more reason to delay the surgery. Ideally such a major surgery can be done only after all infections are treated well.
The best doctors to take care of him are Hepatologist / Gastroenterologist for liver and a Neurophysician for his coma.
Hope this answers your query. In case of any doubts I am available for follow ups.
