Thank you for asking!
Your doctor is very right. Age of 85 is not friendly with bypass surgeries as there are a lot of anaesthetic troubles and more trouble than benefit can result from it. I suggest stick to the plan and do as directed by your cardiologist.You are in safe hands. Need nothing to worry about. Rest assured you should know the situation here and prognosis should be well explained to you.
Take care
