Because i bypass op only lasts a number of years, so it's best to have it done, my mum had one two years ago and has to have another in 5 years

Hi, My Dad had a quadrupal heart bypass about 10 years ago and has been in good health since apart from some age related memory loss. He has recently in the past few days complained of not being hungry and feeling a bit unwell. When questioned, he says he doesn t feel sick, isn t constipated or have diarrhea, doesn t have heartburn (ie refux) and generally he can t explain why he isn t hungry and doesn t feel great. I am wondering if i should be concerned about whether this could be heart related or whether he may just have some sort of tummy upset that isn t materialising into obvious symptoms? He has complained in the last couple of weeks of feeling a bit hot and has looked a bit flushed but this ahs been intermittent. Could you advise me of what I should do for him please? Many Thanks Trish

My grandfather is having a heart bypass tomorrow due to him having clots in his legs, the doctors told him he would not survive the surgery on his legs in he did not have this heart bypass, how risky is this operation going to be? He gave up smoking last year after smoking for 40+ years. What chance does he have of surviving this operation? They have already put it off twice before because they didnt think he would make it through!!
