      hope you don't mind me popping in, but you obviously need a bit of advice

      I have had two bypass surgeries,,hence my previous question.

      You don't say how long ago you had it done.

      What you should be doing, is enjoying life, now you have got it back. 

      The obvious dont do's are smoking ,drinking copiously, and don't get

      fat. What are you worrying about ????

      fat. and stop worrying about it
