Doesn't sound like he is good health in the first place so 20% is pretty low for just what you have said. If he needs it he needs it that is all there is to it. Just make sure he is willing to undergo life style changes he needs to in order to make it worth it. It won't be a quick fix if that is what you are wanting someone to tell you. There is post op recup time to consider the worse someone is prior surgery the worse they are post op as a rule of thumb. They didn't get this bad overningt and they won't be fixed overnight. Just hope he will take care of him self after the surgery to make it worth while.
