Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was discharged from Kolkata's Woodlands hospital on Thursday (January 7). He was admitted to the hospital after suffering a heart attack and later underwent an angioplasty.
Discharged from the hospital after being admitted for nearly six days, Ganguly thanked the doctors for taking good care of him and confirmed he's in good condition. He also acknowledged the love and support of his well-wishers.
"I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine, hopefully I will be ready to fly soon."
"Firstly, I thank everyone for their well wishes. Especially the doctors at the Woodlands Hospital. I thank them for taking care of me. They say we come to the hospital to get our lives back and it's really has been that," he added.
Dr. Rupali Basu MD & CEO Woodlands Hospital had said Ganguly will be able to continue his normal daily routine in 3-4 weeks after the revascularisation of two blocked arteries.
"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 told India Today.
Later, a medical team of 9 members decided that Ganguly doesn't need another immediate angioplasty for the remaining blockages in his coronary arteries.
