This is Dr. David
that depends on what type of surgery you are having.
with any surgery, there are small risks.
you have atrial fibrillation and arteritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
does your heart doctor want to do heart surgery?
no it is general surgery bowel repair and toe removal. Is that enough information?
there are small risks with bowel surgery and toe amputation, but the risks are small.
and if you need the surgeries, then those medical issues have risks as well.
if you have gangreen of the toe or an infection of the toe, this can be very serious and can spread and kill you if you don't have that surgery.
why do you need bowel repair?
or scar tissue in your abdomen?
I have to drive to work, I'll be back in 10 minutes.
I have a double prolapse and the defaecating proctogram showed marked pelvic floor descent at rest with
the anal canal markedly opn and the anorectal angle significantly increased
this pelvic prolapse will get worse if not fixed by surgery.
it sounds like you are to far advanced for kegel pelvic floor exercises to help.
it sounds like you need these surgeries.
yes that's for sure, will they kill me?
no, they will not kill you.
your surgeons will take care to protect your heart and lungs and monitor you throughout the surgery.
