I'm not a health professional but have read and researched a lot of my own Angiography reports, as I had/have aggressive Cardiac Artery Disease.  It sounds like your father has significant disease in the branch arteries, and worrisome disease in the LAD.  His CAD (Cardiac Artery Disease) is not quite at the point of a procedure, but very, very close.  

Hopefully he is controlling his diabetes, his cholesterol numbers, and has adopted a healthy cardiac diet.  If he is over weight, hopefully he is trying to lose it and is exercising.  Also, I'm trusting that he is taking all the good pharma drugs that help control CAD, and mixing in fish oil tablets.  His situation sounds like it should be monitored closely.  Hopefully he will have his cholesterol level checked at least every three months, and any change in chest pain should be reported.  I'm sure he is carrying Nitro tablets, if not, he should.  Exercise is simply vital.  It's the only way he will be able to self-monitor how his heart is doing.  If the same exercise regimine suddenly get's difficult, it's time to get another angiogram and see what is causing the problem.  

His situation is much like mine twelve years ago, but I had eight stents inserted, then a pacemaker, and finally bypass surgery.  However, I'm still standing.  If I were to do it over again, however,  I'd had a bypass procedure.  Keep us informed.
