Overweight, gastric bypass, 40% heart working, taking medicines, no improvement. Suggest treatment?

My brother was overweight and he decided to get a gastric bypass but the doctors are saying that only 40% of his heart is working. How long can he live with only that much of his hear working. He does take meds for it but they are not improving his condition at all. Can you please give any advice to his situation please?

Unfortunately, ur brother should not undergo a gastric bypass at all , but if he is Obese & want to reduce His body weight
I would like to recomment dieting, exercise & Using Non-invasive techniques for reducing fats from a localized obesity (as abdominal, hips or thigh obesity) like Acoustic wave therapy, Cold laser or Ultrasound focus & cavitation
