Hi Tootsie & welcome to the forum. So, is your father about 6 months post op from the 2nd surgery? If it has only been 6 months he probably still has some healing to do. His age & diabetes is a factor with healing. Please know that it is not uncommon for the wires/bands to break after surgery.
From what you are saying the cardiologist is saying he would be high risk for further surgery, I would listen closely to that comment. Knowing this prior to surgery is a huge risk to take, I would not be willing to risk it, nor would I want my father having it done.
As far as the pain goes, none of us can say if the pain will go away or not. The questions you are asking should be written down & answered by his dr. Perhaps you can attend an appt with your father & get some answers.
I am sorry I cannot be more helpful.
