Is my friend undergoing a very risky surgery

Patient

Q: My friend is a 17 year old girl who is going through a surgery for which she said a tube would clean her insides. She said she only has a 40% chance of surviving. Is this true? I think she might have misunderstood.

Earlier she had a blood problem where she wasnt eating enough nor was she producing enough blood. She said she may need a blood donation
EDIT:
Im afraid I do not know the name of the surgery, only the information which I have told you

Symptoms:  Earlier she had a blood problem where she wasnt eating enough nor was she producing enough blood. She said she may need a blood donation
