I had a quadruple bypass after fainting event. Is it possible I didn't need the heart surgery? If I have syncope, can I treat this with medication?
Quadruple bypass is a surgery for heart disease, since you've had it, it tells me the syncope is caused by heart problem. I can't say if there were other treatment options at the time of your surgery since there's little info to start with. But syncope caused by heart problem usually indicates the severity of the heart disease.
