In brief: Avoid heart attack

After cardiac bypass surgery, it is vital that you make a plan that will ensure you never need another surgery, never have a heart attack or stroke, and maintain a high quality of life for years to come.
Reduce fats and foods that increase cholesterol to help keep your arteries clear. Lose weight to reduce the stress on your cardiovascular system.
