In brief: It varies

If the bypass was done after a heart attack it may take a lot longer to recover, whereas if it was an elective procedure then recovery may be possible in 4-6 weeks, especially if followed by good cardiac rehab program.

In brief: Bypass recovery

This is not an easy answer. In large part, it depends on your overall health and associated diseases (co-morbid conditions) as well as your partcipation and response to rehabilitation and exercise.
Generally speaking don't expect too much for a minimum of 6 months but work hard to achieve the best possible lifestyle to accomplish a rapid recovery.
