Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There are separate and specific indications for the stent and bypass surgery. There are several more secondary and modifying factors - hence the need to tailor to individual needs. One size doesn't suit all.

Your father has Coronary Artery Disease / It is not stable / Probably heart failure and asthma /

He should be admitted again in a Tertiary Care Multi-speciality care Hospital / investigated / very likely he needs a bypass

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
