Sourav Ganguly, former India captain and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, was taken to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata after he complained of chest pain on Wednesday.
Ganguly had undergone angioplasty earlier this month in Kolkata at the Woodlands Hospital. At the time of his discharge, doctors had said that a decision on more stents will be taken later.
A nine-member medical board of the Woodlands Hospital had on January 4 concluded that angioplasty on Ganguly’s other two coronary blockages, LAD and OM2, will be done at a later stage.
The doctor had also mentioned that the former India skipper would be monitored at home on a daily basis after being discharged.
After getting discharged, the former Indian skipper had thanked the medical team of Woodlands Hospital for looking after him and doing the needful procedures. “I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon,” Ganguly had told reporters.
On January 6, Dr. Rupali Basu, MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital, had said that the former captain would be monitored at home on a daily basis after being discharged.
The 48-year-old would be ready for the next course of procedures or medical intervention after about 2-3 weeks, Dr Basu had explained while informing the reporters about the health of the former India captain. Cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty had also met the medical team of nine doctors attending to Ganguly and then a further course of action was decided by the hospital.
Dr Shetty said that the heart of Ganguly was as strong as it was when the former India skipper was 20-years-old.
