Is medicine management sufficient or I have to go for bypass ?
Nothing is compulsory, it's your body and you make the final decisions on anything. Having said that, you are diabetic. If I remember correctly, Diabetics have a much better outcome, short and long term, from bypass surgery over stenting. Diabetics tend to restenose stents more frequently. Looking at your report, I think there's too much work involved to stent everything, making it much more risky. Your LAD for example is sequentially diseased from the middle all the way to the bottom and you have disease forming in the Left main coronary artery. The circumflex is forming a blockage near the bottom, and the right coronary artery is totally blocked. It would take a box of stents to treat that lot and I would be surprised if any cardiologist would be willing to take it on.
Should you have bypass or medication? Well, that's a tough question because we don't really know how bad your symptoms are. If it was me, I would take the medication for as long as it works, but as soon as your symptoms worsen, have a rethink. I wouldn't just keep increasing my meds, as soon as my condition gets worse, I would go for intervention.
How long the meds hold off bypass surgery is anyones guess. You could go on for weeks/months or the rest of your natural life without needing surgery, but you will have to make some BIG lifestyle changes to stop the disease progressing. Diet change, keep blood pressure down, keep cholesterol checked and low, exercise regularly (even if just walking every day), avoid stress and go to the hospital if you feel worse at any time.
I wish you well.
