I havent had the bypass but I have three stents put in. Just wondering did they put you on a beta blocker med, such as low pressor. When I had my heart attack and they did the stents afterwards my heart tended to not beat quit right dont know what they called it but put me on metoprolol tartrate which is a beta blocker. It really worked good for me, but I had terrible nightmares with it for about a year after starting it. Also with me I had to give up caffine because it caused my heart to pulpatate. some meds cause it with me also. As far as feeling brand new, that didnt happen for me either but I have other problems going on. synthroid is for my thyroid, lowpressor is for heart and bloodpressure, cozaar for bloodpressure, imdur for heart, proventol for asthma, plavix keeps the blood thinner and from clotting, protonix for acid reflux, asacal for ulcerated colitise, carafate for emflamation in stomach, zyrtec for allergies, potassium because with the UC tends to deplete my potassium. Is your chest pain like agina pain, that is why I take imdur.Sorry I cant be of more help. I would talk to the doctor again and If you feel he isnt doing what he should maybe see another doctor.
