3 doctors agree

In brief: It depends

His surgeon would be a better resource.
Life expectancy depends on several things. How well does his heart squeeze? Were all the blockages bypassed? How healthy are the rest of his arteries? Does he have lung disease, diabetes, other health issues? Is he smoking? Will he change his risk factors? Assuming no other issues and normal heart function then he should do very well.

In brief: Life expectancy

Totally unpredictable .
Usually normal life expectancy after bypass surgery.
