Patients with 3 vessel disease (like you) do much better with a bypass operation than stenting and I am not at all sure they have restored the blood flow to your heart back to normal as a coronary bypass operation (CABG) would have. A typical response after a procedure is often “we fixed you, so this can no longer be angina.”
You need to have your heart re-evaluated with a stress test at the very least.
You can read about this here:

Here you can calculate whether your treatment would have benefited from a different procedure:
I have blogged about this before, because I think patients often are scared away from what is the gold standard in improving blood flow to your heart:
Hope this helps,
