Hepatitis C, but is there any liver damage resulting into chronic hepatitis. If no, still the treating surgeon needs to be cautious as there is risk for the surgeon and the operating staff.

Thyroid problem can be controlled. What kind of neuro problem does he actually has. It needs to consulted and clarified with neurologist.
