In brief: See PCP.

If someone like your mother has a history of heart disease (which it sounds likes she does), it is important to be followed regularly by a care provider. These kinds of issues can be progressive and/or recurrent, so regular monitoring is a must.

In brief: Needs followup

CABG 10 years ago implies that CAD has been present for along time.
For the mother of a current 23 yo it means that CAD started at an early age. Bypas grafts that are 10 yrs old have a 50% chance of being closed. Makes sense to see a doctor , probably get some testing (stress test, echo) to risk stratify going forward. Risk factor assessment, checking lipids all are needed. She should be moup.
