What are the risk for a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patient having a radical nephrectomy?

Depends

Copd
COPD exists with varying severity, and most patients can have surgery with no significant increased risk. If COPD is very severe, or there is significant chronic sputum production, surgical risk is higher, but experienced teams of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and respiratory therapists can help mitigate the risk. One important thing you have control over is pre-op smoking cessation.

Causes of blood +1 , ketone +1.5 , in one sided nephrectomy patient,non diabetic?

Urine findings

Blood
Ketones, in the absence of glucose, in a urine analysis are an indication of starvation and are nothing to worry about. Blood in the urine (B) can be due to various factors. Among them are, a UTI, kidney stone, bladder or kidney cancer and glomerulonephritis, among others. If the B in the urine persists and is not due to a UTI, see a urologist for its diagnosis.

I'm in RN school and having trouble obtaining information about the correct procedure for positioning a patient after a nephrectomy. Please help.?

It depends

It depends on where the doctor makes the incision and whether he/she is doing surgery lap, robotic or open. Campbell's urology, the definitive textbook on Urology in your medical library should be a good reference.

Dr. James M. Krick answered:

What are some complications to look out for after a laparo radical nephrectomy? Risk factors?

Lap nephrectomy

Nephrectomy
Contrary to popular belief, laparoscopic organ removal has about the same complication risk as open surgery. Internal bleeding, infection, pneumonia, blood clots and incisional hernias can occur in both surgeries. Most young/healthy patients do well after either surgical approach.

Foot drop after radical nephrectomy surgery?

Foot drop

This usually indicates nerve injury during surgery. As the surgery wasn't at the knee area it usually resolves. You don't state when the surgery was done , so feel free to contact your surgeon with this and any related questions

What is the survival rate of renal cell carcinoma patients who have had treatment with nephrectomy?

Depends on stage

Cancer
Renal cell carcinoma, like every other cancer, has a staging system. Within any one stage, survival is usually quoted as 5-yr survival, that is, the % of patients one can expect to still be alive in 5 years. So a nephrectomy might be performed on a patient in stage I, and have excellent survival, or in stage IV and have poor survival.
