Would 2-3x yr bleeding hemorroids & bloody nose, radiation caused proctitis (APC treated), wet AMD, prior Ileus & ecoli infection (from colon resection) create risk of infection for Total Shoulder Replacement surgery or future joint infection?

In brief: Extensive Medical

histories like yours are beyond the scope of what a HealthTap Doctor can helpfully and responsibly manage.
If you are needing the procedure, the best sources for your answers are the surgeon, anesthesiologist and your treating physicians. That said, any prior medical issues can frequently interfere with what are generally considered minor procedures so the short answer is yes.
