heart disease

Hi My husband had a double bypass in June 2010. His was off lung. One bypass failed and the had to go in 2 weeks later and place a stent. What are the chances of having a 2nd bypass? He said he  will never go through it again.

The chances of another bypass mainly depend on his treatment and lifestyle changes.  Anyone with heart disease needs to know that there is no cure, and it takes total commitment in treatment.  It will take some time to get the right combination of meds, building up the strength to exercise daily and of course, quitting some things we do that are not right for our well being.
