I had a quadruple bypass last year. In the last 2 mos I notice that I have new chest pressure. Not gastric (I already take Protonix andthat stopped that). This pressure comes when upset, with stair climbing, walking sometimes and just recently while doing nothing (i.e. sitting in car, sitting at table). It just comes and goes, sometimes with jaw pain, sometimes without. Sometimes the jaw pain only. Sometimes it's not there at all during the exercise but when I sit down to rest it comes. I have had diabetes for 35 years (I am 42). I take insulin, capoten, lipitor (yet my cholesterol is still 190), zetia, imdur, aspirin (I do forget the aspirin at least 2x a week). The question is, my bypasses were done sequentially. The dr said he only cares if they (the new grafts) stay open and doesn't worry about the arteries I was born witrh (native arteries). Isn't that a problem? Don't you want the native arteries to stay open so that in the event a sequential graft fails, the native kicks in?. Does anyone have experience with this issue?
