My mom had the operation about 3-4 years ago and begin to have kidney problems. I also had the operation 2 years ago and a year ago started getting kidney stones on a regarly basis.Dr told me to stop taking vitamine tablets, and my problems stop. Last week my mom died, kidney failure, can it be because of the operation?
