    Quadruple Bypass after Kidney Donation

    A friend of mine needs a quadruple bypass after suffering a heart attack. He has had normal BP and is a very healthy 72 year old individual, otherwise. He donated a kidney to a family member 20 years ago, and has had no side effects or problems related to his donation. He is very worried about the possibility of kidney damage from surgery and having to go through dialysis. What are chances of permanent kidney damage? Anything informative someone can point me towards? Thank you.
