Polyuria: due to the fluid shifts after CABG it is not uncommon to have a lot of urine. in addition it is quite common to have diuretics after surgery and this will add to your polyuria.

Polyuria: Did they put you on a diuretic? such as furosemide (lasix) or Bumex? Sometimes with a CABG they need to use IV fluids and then get the fluid off. It might be that your heart with the better circulation is working better. I don't think it is anything to be worried about urgently. I would follow up with your cardiologist soon.
