How long does a person usually live after a 7 way heart bypass,

What is the usual time left for a person that had a 7 graft by pass.?
I was told no more than 10 years on the outside. Has this prediction changed in the last few years,
I have made it seven years with very little problems. But I sure would like to know how much life I got left.

There is no way to tell for sure.  When you were told ten years, they probably were talking about the life of a graft and then, that is only an estimate.  So much depends on the condition of your heart and lots of other health factors and how well you take care of yourself.  In 2003 I had five bypasses done after a heart attack.  I was told 10 years too, but only if I didn't change some of my health and eating habits.  

If you asked the doctors today how long you have left after seven years of little or no problems they would probably tell you they can't put a time frame to it.  And they would be telling the truth.
