Is Bypass Required Immediately For Severe Calcification Of The Heart?
Stents will take care as of now
After going through the medical details provided by you of your husband situation I understand your concern for his health and I would like to tell you that as he had a heart attack last night and after that he got treated with Angioplasty (stents).
So as of now whatever the important and critical lesions where there inside they has been corrected with the help of stents.
Probably there are some more blockages inside which are insignificant as of now, that's why your doctor told that there are chances that he will require bypass in future.
But if your husband will take good care of himself like by taking medicines on time, adopting healthy lifestyle habits, no smoking at all (if he do), daily exercises and regular follow ups with his cardiologist then probably he won't need any bypass.
As of now stents have taken care of the problem.
I hope this information will answer your query.
