What causes pain in jaws while walking briskly?

Age:63, height:167cms, wt:65 diabetic since 28 yrs.

Owing to symptom of jaw pain while walking briskly underwent investigations which showed three arterial blocks. Underwent CABG exactly one month back (17 June) in Apollo Bangalore. Discharged on 22nd. Strictly following post CABG medical instructions. Haemoglobin was found to be 8.9 as against 14 prior to CABG. Presently, good apetite, sleep, bowls etc. Cheerful. The pain or pressure in the jaws still persists while walking briskly. After all I have under gone, I am really scared. Was the CABG successful?
