Ganguly admitted to Apollo hospital in Kolkata
KOLKATA [Maha Media]: BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was taken to Apollo Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after he complained about being unwell.
The former India captain was recently in hospital after complaining of a chest pain. He had underwent angioplasty and left the hospital after 5 days of continous monitiring by the doctors. "I am fine," Sourav Ganguly had said after getting discharged.
Sourav Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage. Ganguly had also tested negative for Covid-19 on Sunday.
A 9-member medical team was formed on Monday who then decided that Ganguly doesn't need any further angioplasty for the remaining blockages in his coronary arteries.
Dr Rupali Basu MD & CEO Woodlands Hospital, had earlier told India Today that Ganguly will be able to resume his normal life in another 3-4 weeks once the remaining two blocked arteries are revascularised.
"I don't think we are considering surgery at the moment because of his young age and the advancement of angioplasty.
"But we are taking expert opinions from the best cardiologists in the country and in the world and then we will have to take a call about what to do with the 2 blocked arteries and once that is done, another 3-4 weeks of resting and he should be back to his active life and that's what we want for Dada to be back to his active life," Dr. Basu had said.
