In brief: Yes

Although post operative pain is common, if you have increasing pain a cardiac test may reassrure you about a heart attack.

In brief: Yes

Your cardiac surgeon and cardiologist need to know of your symptoms.
Probably just post surgical, but occasionally an issue. Ekg can be helpful, echo can be helpful. Enzymes in blood have likely cleared- and not useful now.

There are lots of reasons you could have pain this long after surgery, but you should definitely see your doctor
