hi I can understand your anguish since your family member is not doing well after cardiac Bypass surgery. Previous hip Replacement getting infected and now not getting up and on dialysis.These are the kind of situation that make medicine such a complicated business. Infection may have affected kidneys , that is why she is undergoing dialysis.
