: My dad just had a triple bypass surgery. 3 weeks later 2 of the 3 bypasses are clogged up. How did this happen? What can doctors do for him. He's only 40 years old. Doctors say that in 2-3 weeks they will try a stent/balloon on him. Will that work? What is his life expectancy? Please respond for I need help.
It is very unusual that the arteries would clogg up again so fast. What explination did the doctors give?? Obviously they have to wait until your father has recovered sufficiently from the surgery to insert the stents. Dick Cheney just had a stent inserted into one of his clogged arteries and he is doing well. Usually the stents require replacement every 8-10 years or so. A friend of mine had one put in 5 years ago and she is doing just fine.
