Unfortunately, having coronary bypass surgery at such an early age does put you at continued high risk for heart attacks in the future. Your treatment must include intensive cholesterol lowering with medication and advanced cholesterol blood tests to follow the results of these medications. A low fat, low cholesterol diet along with aerobic exercise and maintaining a low normal body weight are essential. Control of other medical issues such as high blood pressure and pre diabetes or diabetes is essential. Cigarette smoking is absolutely not allowed and for patients who do continue to smoke they can be guaranteed to have future additional heart attacks.
