i have had two artery bypass a numberof years ago how long do thy lasti am age 82

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
the artery bypass grafts should last a long time and should not wear out.

that is good you are 82 years old.

most likely the two artery bypass grafts will last longer than you will

hopefully your circulation has improved in your legs and you are able to walk around

we know patients who are able to walk and move about will live longer than patients who are sedintary and can't walk around.
