It seems that there is a new complication, according to the surgeon .Because of the non - Hodgekins, MIL has had the maximum radiation that her body will tolerate. Between that and the chemo, she is no longer really able to walk , much less stand.
Part of the recovery period with a by pass is getting the patient up and moving about...forcing circulation to get back where is needs to be.
Which she cannot do .
They are not sure they can actually do the bypass and we won't know more till the surgeon talks to the radiologist.
Frak if we know.
