If you have the CABG you will have additional pain in your leg from where they take the graft. My son complained a lot about that pain which I am told can sometimes be worse than the OHS. 1 graft doesn't sound too bad, you certainly don't want another surgery later.
Can they stent it if they don't do the CABG?
