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.
