Hello, it is hard to tell without seeing her condition and without seeing her lab tests. Since your doctor already seem them and advised for surgery, so she may need it. What you have to consider is her age and multiple Co morbid conditions like diabetes, altered creatine and advanced age, hypertensive - since it is a major surgery all these would affect her prognosis. So before surgery ask in detail about benefit versus risks of proposed surgery with our doctor.
