Oh, definitely. Especially if he had open heart surgery and they used a bypass machine(the heart is stopped and all the arteries, etc. are connected insead to a heart-lung machine so the surgeons can work on the heart)..some doctors refer to it as "pump head", an unkind term for some of the short-term cognitive changes that people will have after undergoing heart surgery using the heart/lung machine AKA "pump". Memory loss and "fogginess" with certain details are real common after heart surgery.
In all honesty, I don't think he will be put off if you are straightforward with may prompt him to write himself some reminder notes that he can refer to while recovering. You can frame it from the perspective of being concerned for him(which is are concerned for him) and taking it from there. I'm sure his other clients have noticed as well.
