Bypass blockage
My partner experienced terrible jaw pain 3 weeks  after having open heart surgery with 5 bypasses.  On examination my partner had had a heart attack and 2 of his bypasses were 100% blocked 3 weeks post op.  They could not stent them.  He was sent home without any explanation of why this happened.  Did we do something wrong with his care at home after surgery?

Absolutely not. Vein grafts come with no guarantee whatsoever. Veins are not as strong as arteries and do not last as long. My triple bypass lasted 3 months, but in some people they last 10, 15 years or longer. Some people they last a matter of days.
