Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Aortobifemoral bypass surgery has no co-relation with swallowing problem and both are totally different condition, so dont think that this swallowing problem is due to surgery.
You need to Consult a gastroenterologist for this problem of your wife, and she will require upper g.i. Endoscopy to reach to diagnosis.
I hope i have answered your query.
