Re: Do they ever not proceed with triple bypass
I guess they would have to weigh the ethics of having performed major surgery on a man with serious blockages which would impair recovery and then not doing anything, against the ethics of performing the surgery on veins that probably weren't going to work in the long run anyway. Sometimes the risks vs benefits aren't real clear cut and this sounds like one of those hard cases. I'm sorry about the loss of your father ((hugs)).
