Regis Philbin surprised his national TV audience this morning (Monday) when he disclosed that he will undergo heart-bypass surgery later this week. He said that he had seen specialists after suffering chest pains and shortness of breath and had originally hoped to have the less invasive angioplasty operation. However, doctors informed him that he had too much plaque in his arteries for such a procedure. "Darn it, I don't want to do it," Philbin told his TV audience. "Nobody wants to do it, I guess. And I had a second opinion, I did all those things, and so they're all in agreement that it should be the bypass."
