Hello Geri, Thank you for the question.
Does your parents have heart disease? What surgery will your parents undergo? I'm sorry I cannot provide more detailed information about your question because of the lack of information about heart disease experienced by your parents and the surgery that he will undergo. In general, surgery must have a risk for sufferers. The risk of this action can be:
the risk of surgery itself in the form of bleeding, infection, injury to the surrounding organs the risk of anesthesia in the form of respiratory disorders, heart function disorders, allergic reactions, etc. The size of this risk depends on the health condition of the patient. Before undergoing surgery, the anesthetist with the cardiac surgeon will conduct a number of examinations on the patient to determine the general health condition of the patient. The general condition of the patient needs to be known to know whether the operation has a high risk with the current condition. Then the doctor will reconsider whether the operation really has greater benefits compared to the risks based on the general condition of the patient. If surgery can help your parents 'condition, surgery can be delayed until your parents' condition is better.
The best step you can take at this time is to discuss with a specialist heart surgeon who treats your parents because the doctor is the one who has done a series of examinations on your parents and better understand the conditions and risks of surgery. You can also consult an anesthetist who will handle the anesthesia of your parents. Don't hesitate to ask as many questions as possible until you and your family understand the risks and benefits of these actions.
Hopefully this information is useful.
