The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief and former India captain Sourav Ganguly recently underwent angioplasty in Kolkata at the Woodlands Hospital. However, it seems like the troubles have not ended yet for Ganguly as once again on Wednesday morning the 48-year-old felt chest pain and discomfort and was taken to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata.
On his last visit to the hospital, the nine-member medical board of the Woodlands Hospital stated that he may have to undergo another surgery soon as the board concluded that angioplasty on the cricketers’ other two coronary blockages, LAD and OM2 will have to be done later.
Ganguly was admitted at CCU 142 unit, a separate room inside Critical Care Unit, at the Apollo Hospital. And, the hospital has informed that he is absolutely stable. The doctors who are monitoring Ganguly’s condition have confirmed that his situation is not alarming. He will be further monitored before they take a call, on Thursday, on the second stent which might be needed.
Ganguly had spent five days at the hospital before he was discharged after getting a green signal from the doctors on January 7.
“Mr Ganguly is clinically fit. He slept well and had his meal. He wanted to stay in the hospital for one more day. So he will go home tomorrow. It is his personal decision,” Dr. Rupali Basu, MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital had said.
