The chances are usually good!
Your surgeon should review the risks and benefits of surgery with you. It depends on a bunch of different factors, including age and other medical issues.
Any history of kidney problems and lung problems will be taken into consideration, and if necessary, a specialist will be consulted to follow along during the hospital course. Talk with the surgeon about your concerns, make an educated decision, and you'll do just fine.

My grandfather is having a heart bypass tomorrow due to him having clots in his legs, the doctors told him he would not survive the surgery on his legs in he did not have this heart bypass, how risky is this operation going to be? He gave up smoking last year after smoking for 40+ years. What chance does he have of surviving this operation? They have already put it off twice before because they didnt think he would make it through!!
I am two years out from bariatric surgery. When I eat a meal, sometimes, I have to lay down because my heart starts beating so hard. What does it mean when I can feel my heart beating by putting my hand on my chest? It often takes up to 2 hours until the heart calms down.
I have had diarrhea off and on for the past 3 weeks, that started right after a viral infection. No fever, some nausea, and stomach pains very high right under breast. I did have gastric bypass 4 years ago. Everyone says it's just a thing going around, but 3 weeks straight? Just don't know what to do. Feeling very weak and tired all the time. Not eating much, and low fluid intake due to it all runs right through me. Thanks for any advise!

I had a complete hysterectomy in January 2010 and have been on Estradiol pretty much since. I currently take 1 mg by mouth as I am allergic to patches. I also take calcium/Vit.D as well as other vitamins/supplements. I am now considering bariatric surgery (sometime around July/August) due to my long-term diabetes and the surgeon says I must go off the Estradiol. My concerns include becoming a raving mad woman, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and loss of libido as I am in a sexual relationship. What would be the best way to wean off the Estradiol with the (hopefully) least side effects? Thank you
