He had quad bypass surgery 13 years ago and now the bypass arteries are clotted. He is told another bypass is not an option. He is going in to talk to a specialist in another hospital on Tuesday. What questions would be good to ask? I have the normal "what are the options, long term expectations (1-5 years), etc.
What options can be looked at? crrp, angioplasty,etc.
Thanks for your input.
