hi ritu;
Most blockages if all three vessels are at 85-90% mostly doctor advises bypass.But the decision is always taken keeping the general condition of the patient in mind & the risk involved.As bypass is a very major surgery & risk is also high the treating doctor will definitely decide about it keeping in mind the condition of lung & your fathers general condition.The BEST person to decide will be the treating doctor trust him.
