My husband has had 5 operations, vascular surgery for blocked arteries in his leg had three stents inserted which are now bloked and has now been told they cannot do a bypass as there is no way that volume of blood can get through his blockages, what next ???? Any suggestions?.

There are many reasons why a bypass may not be possible. There may be other options, but your existing surgeon may also be correct. If you have any doubt, ask for a second opinion. Your surgeon should be happy to help you get a second opinion.

Always seek a second or even third opinion, as different specialists may have different suggestions.

I agree with my colleagues as your husband experiences now very complex situation and needs to hear about possible options from at least two different surgeons.
