Must surgery be delayed because of shingles?
My mom is 72 and had a very successful chest bypass a few years ago. She now needs a bypass in her right leg for a 100% blockage (no pulse outer side, strong inner). But she told me that the surgeon will not do a bypass until the pain in her upper right side from the shingles is gone (started in February 2013). Does this sound correct or should she seek a 2nd option?
