Keep aside the percentage of blockage. check what is the LVEF%? If it is normal, he can live with Ayurveda medication, change in diet and life style. Check for more help.

It is called triple vessels disease. In this case, genrally medication can not reverse the situation . it is advisable to follow the instructions of cardiologist and if he suggest for bipass than it is inevitable.

Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare Magic forum..
Your father is having a Triple Vessel disease of the heart. The amount of blockage which you have mentioned needs surgical eventually and its difficult to manage though medications.
I would advice you consult a CTVS and discuss further management of your father..
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
