Why am I experiencing excessive shortness of breath and tiredness post a carotid subclavian bypass surgery?

had carotid subclavian bypass with stents placed in carotid artery from the groin all the way up to my clavicle due to an extensive aorta rescission almost 18 inches long . Since the end of the surgery I ve been unable to talk and have the feeling that I need to cough but am not able to. I m also experiencing excessive shortness of breath when trying to walk and a non characteristic tiredness even when sitting. Surgery was a month ago.

Please could you help. My father is a very young 80 years. He had a double by-pass +- 12 years ago. The last 2weeks he has been complaining about feeling very tired, short of breath and having a feeling of a hollow chest. he has been using Uroxatral 10mg one a day for many years. He is also using Verapamil 240mg 1table in the morning everyday. Could this be the problem? What can I advise him to do. As I do not have any money for a doctor at present. Many thanks
