‘Ganguly is clinically fit’
Earlier, noted cardiac surgeon Dr Devi Shetty said that the BCCI president is stable and can now be discharged from the hospital.
“Sourav Ganguly is fit and he can get back to normal life as it was. He can be discharged tomorrow,” Dr Shetty said on Tuesday.
“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,” Woodlands Hospital MD and CEO Dr Rupali Basu said while speaking to reporters.
The necessary formalities to discharge Ganguly were completed, and he and his family members were briefed about the medicines which he needs to take after returning home.
“He is fine and has no chest pain or any other complications. Our team of doctors monitored his health condition thoroughly this morning,” a senior official of the facility said as quoted by PTI
The doctors at the private hospital had reached a consensus that the 48-year-old, who has been diagnosed with ‘Triple vessel disease’, might have to undergo second angioplasty, which could be performed at a “later stage”.
