You haven't had your bypass surgery for very long at all. I would put up with the pains until roughly 6 months have passed. I had a triple bypass at the age of 47 and it took a whole year before I felt normal again. However, after 6 months the worst pains all subsided. Some people take much longer than others for recovery and like me you sound like you could be one of the slower ones. It seems very odd though because I was the first out of hospital after surgery from the group who had bypasses that day, yet it took far longer to fully recover.
