I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's complications, but at least it was caught right away. I'm sure it was probably due to a leaking vessel that wasn't noticed before closing. That's why they watch you so closely after surgery, especially your blood pressure which can show if you're having blood loss after surgery. Recovery wise, I wouldn't think it would change anything much.
