I had a quadruple bypass in 1995. Fifteen years later I had a second bypass (a tripple)in late 2010. Tell your Dad to reduce the Carbs and salt.
The additional weight could prove to be detrimental.
Also insist that your Dad have his Thyroid checked.
The symptoms mentioned indicate a negative Thyroid
condition may be in need of attention.
I wish you and your Dad the best..
