Things have progressed so far in the past twenty years since my father died of heart trouble. My next-door-neighbour had bypass surgery at the age of seventy and he is still going strong and is really active at the age of 83. Every case is different, but I'm sure your father will get the best of advice and care and has every chance of leading a normal life if he follows the experts' advice. The British Heart Foundation will be able to answer your questions and give you the support you need: I wish you, your dad and your family the best!
