Sourav Ganguly Discharged From Hospital Post Angioplasty
Kolkata: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly was released from a private hospital here on Sunday morning.
The former cricketer was discharged three days after he underwent a fresh round of angioplasty to clear clogged coronary arteries at Apollo Hospital on Thursday. Two more stents were implanted during the surgery conducted by a team of doctors, including noted cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty.
“Sourav Ganguly is doing fine and his heart is as strong as a normal person. He had an uneventful recovery and we are hopeful that within the next couple of days, he will be able to return to normal life,” news agency PTI quoted a senior doctor at Apollo Hospital as saying.
Ganguly is required to follow a strict routine and needs to be on medication for a few months, the doctor added.
The BCCI chief was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after complaining of feeling unwell at home, where he was recovering after being discharged from Woodlands hospital on January 7.
He had been admitted to the hospital on January 2 after complaining of “chest discomfort, heaviness of the head and a spell of dizziness while performing physical exercises in the home gymnasium,” according to a release from Woodlands then. Ganguly had a stent inserted in the right coronary artery on January 2.
