Is Constipation Common With Congestive Heart Failure?

Is nausea,vomiting constipation & passing of blood in urine and stools connected to congestive heart faiure?
Does it mean the body is totally sutting down, or are these symptoms in an 86 year old with diagnosed congestive heart failure not connected.
