I will be getting iliac bypass for poor circulation in my legs due to 95% blockage. How soon will I see the results?

In brief: Fairly quickly

If it is being done for claudication, pain while walking, then once you recover from the bypass, which may take a couple of weeks, you will notice a difference.
If it is being done for an ulcer, it still may take some time for healing to occur.

In brief: Immediately

Providing that the vessels downstream ( femoral, popliteal, tibial ) are open, you will get relief of your pain due to lack of blood flow immediately.
You will especially will notice the effect when you walk. If you have non healing ulcers they will heal over time.
