My dad had a sextuple bypass pass a little over a year ago, six months from that date he had to have another bypass and they repaired four out of the six bypasses. A month ago he was having problems and they did an angiogram to find out that all but two bypasses failed. Now he only has on vessel going to the left of his heart and the other is going to the right of his heart. They have him on medicine to help regenrate blood vessels. He had an Angina attack last week. He refuses to retire and he travels and is starting to travel even more. The surgeon and his cardiologist keep telling him he needs to retire but he loves his job to much to do that. Is the angina a sign telling him he needs to slow it down or is it because he only has to vessels going to his heart. The doctors don't know how long he has and they told him it could be a year to ten years, they don't know but he has to make some changes and one of those is retiring and taking it easy but he isn't. Has anyone else in here had a bypass that has failed twice and having angina? Are you still working or taking it easy? I don't want to loose my dad but I am worried that if he does not slow down I will loose him. Does anyone have any suggestions on how they got their family members to slow down and take it easy?
