ABN ECG after Bypass: Doctor prob means there's no ECG changes from a year ago. ECG was prob abn before Bypass, & worse after. Important questions are answered on Stress test & Echo, & not unreasonable to have a year after Bypass. Important questions are whether you experience unexplained breath shortness or chest/arm discomfort w exertion. Once an ECG is abnormal one can only compare with previous ones(weak test)
