In brief: It depends

This question is best answered by your surgeon and cardiologist.
Some having heart surgery return home taking maybe one or two medications for a short time, most return on one or more meds permanently. The medications are prescribed to optimize your condition, and each patients situation is different. It is important to be compliant.
