Doctors, what are the chances of a 95 year old surviving gall bladder surgery?

depend on health

Surgery
surgery risk are not completely related to ages it is usually related to the patient general health to operate on 90 years old patient you have to have a really good reason and you run out of all medical solution and it could be life saving I would rather operate on healthy 90 years old than a sick 40 years old the survival rate could be determined by the surgeon based on the patient medical statu
