Ganguly re-admitted to hospital after he complains of chest pain
In a piece of disturbing news, the BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is being rushed to the hospital after complaints of chest pain. The development comes nearly a month after the former Indian captain got discharged upon undergoing surgery for the same. According to ANI, the former Indian captain has now been taken to Apollo Hospital in Kolkata where he is being monitored.
Earlier in January, Ganguly got discharged from the Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata after being declared clinically fit. He had to undergo angioplasty after test results showed that he had blockages in three coronary arteries.
Upon reaching the hospital earlier this month, Ganguly was diagnosed with 'Triple Vessel Disease'. Later, Ganguly underwent an angioplasty on the "main culprit artery" which was revascularized with a stent. While many believed that Ganguly suffered a heart attack, India's renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty confirmed that he had a small blockage in the coronary artery.
Notably, Ganguly had to undergo surgeries for the other two coronary arteries. However, medical procedures for the same were to be conducted at a later date. Notably, Ganguly was advised to be on oral medications until then. Ganguly spent five days in the hospital before getting discharged. Thereafter, he was being monitored by doctors and nurses at his home.
According to his family sources, Ganguly complained of chest pain on Wednesday morning. It is understood that he felt uneasiness last evening and mild chest pain this morning, after which his family members decided to take him to Apollo Hospital. As per the latest reports, his condition is stable at the moment. "There is no complication, it's a routine visit," a source told ANI.
