The surgery outcome depends heavily on your cardiopulmonary status so we can't predict the outcome without a thorough evaluation.

There are 2 different issues: 1. Is to survive surgery and usually a medical assessment is done prior to surgery and 2. Medium to long term recovery through proper nutrition and ability to absorb nutrients. Connecting with your primary care doc as soon as possible following surgery may help in further management.
