What does your caridiologist say is the cause? What changes have you made to your lifestyle over the five years? Bypass surgery fixes the immediate need, but lifestyle changes help keep the problem from controlling the new lease on life you get from a successful surgery. Not only do you need to talk to your doctor you need to listen to him/her.
