Subsequent to heart surgery patients suffers acute renal failure, dialysis done breifly then low b.P occurs now dialys?
Loss of physiology: Food normally is mixed with acid and mechanically broken down in the upper stomach. Small amounts are released through the antrum of the stomach, which goes through the duodenum and proximal jejunum. Various substances stimulate secretion of gut hormones and enzymes. In gastric bypass operations, the antrum, duodenum and proximal jejunum are bypassed and reduce levels of these hormones. ...Read more

Dumping: No, not really. There are a very small percentage of people that will get post prandial hypoglycemia, but that only gives you some of the symptoms of dumping. With dumping, you can also get diarrhea, a stomach ache, nausea.

Acute renal failure after hysterectomy becuase of uterine cancer. Is this normal after a hysterectomy? Problems after surgery, dec 2011, mother 62, now renal failure. Kidney doctor found blockage causing the kidneys to fail.
Assuming : Assuming that your mother did not have chronic renal disease going into surgery, then the prognosis for recovery of kidney function will depend on the reason for the acute injury. Most often acute renal failure is due to a period of low blood pressure, where there is not enough blood pressure to perfuse the kidney which results in something called acute tubular necrosis. There are varying degrees of this, which should improve once the blood pressure stabilizes, in some cases, hemodialysis may be necessary to support the kidney until this recovers. Another potential cause though, particularly in uterine surgery, is injury to the ureters, sometimes due to the extent of the tumor or difficulty in removing the uterus. As you mention that the kidney doctor said a blockage was found, this may be a contributing factor, but usually is known prior to surgery. Other causes (unlikely here) may relate to drug toxicities, for example antibiotics or chemotherapy related. In general, if the patient goes into surgery with good kidney function, the prognosis for recovery is good once all the inciting factors are removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends: The lungs can retain fluid because the pressure in the blood vessels of the lungs is high. This can be because of volume overload - too much fluid in the body, or because the heart needs higher pressures to fill. It can also be because the blood vessels of the lung are leakier due to inflammation after surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
