If you have 20 % of liver and extremely overweight and uncontrolled diabetic but needs to remove gall bladder, how risky is the surgery/?

1 doctor weighed in

In brief: Very risky

Morbid obesity is your highest risk; the "20% liver" shouldn't cause too much of an issue if the anatomy stays the same.
Diabetes is an associated risk factor. In summary: High risk; possible death, but less likely (5% possibly----which is quite high) Surgery only if lifestyle limiting.
