Hi Bongi.

You do not mention what kind of operation your father is going to have, but to answer you questions, firstly no, supplements are usually not necessary after a heart attack (mainly because there is little or no evidence of benefit!)

Secondly also no, any supplements he does take will not cause complications during after the procedure.

Hope that answers your questions!
