Thanks for your health concerns. I think that the cardiac surgeon
is being very reasonable, as with medications patients can have the same rates of events and complications as patients with bypass surgery
. If he is stable on medications without symptoms, then full medications are a reasonable approach. If on the contrary, he develops symptoms suspicious for heart disease
bypass will offer him advantages.
Hope this helps, wish you the best
