My boyfriend had quintuple bypass surgery 2 yrs ago.He seemed to recover just fine and has had routine check ups which all seemed normal.ekg,cardiolite,several blood test.He has been noticeing some pain here and there but all test came back fine.He did have unusaul sudden pain on Sat. and ekg, blood test fine,so he had ct scan yesterday,it showed 2 of the arteries blocked. now they want to do angioplasty tuesday. he said that this is uncommon for this to happen, so soon after a bypass.Is this uncommon? and how could this happen so soon after bypass.

I don't know how uncommon this is.   My brother's experience is very similar to your friend's.  He had a stent, then by pass, and recently another stent.  The time frame between bypass and stent was similar to what you describe.  The important thing to consider is lifestyle changes can go a long way toward preventing further heart complications.  I recommend Arthur Agatston's book, "The South Beach Heart Program"   He writes extensively about aggressive prevention techniques.

Doesn't sound too uncommon to me either.  I had triple bypass, and then got 2 stents within 4 months.

Stuff happens.......
