Mumbai: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly was taken to Kolkata’s Apollo Hospital on Wednesday after complaining of being unwell. He was admitted to the CCU 142 unit in a separate room inside the Critical Care Unit at Apollo Hospital.
Sources close to the former India skipper said that there was nothing to worry and it is a routine visit. “There is no complication, it is a routine visit,” the source told ANI
According to the hospital, there have been minor changes in Sourav Ganguly’s electrocardiogram (ECG) report. The 48-year-old former cricketer is being closely monitored by doctors at the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata. Ganguly’s health care doctors have confirmed that his condition is not alarming. He will be monitored before calling another stent on Thursday, which may be required.
The former Indian captain was in hospital recently after complaining of chest pain. He underwent angioplasty after 5 days of continuous monitoring by doctors and left the hospital. “I’m fine,” Sourav Ganguly said after being discharged.
Sourav Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday, after which a stent was inserted to remove the blockage. Ganguly on Sunday tested negative for COVID-19.
Famous cardiac surgeon Drs. Devi Shetty, who was part of the team of doctors who participated in Ganguly, said there was no loss of her suffering. “BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly was taken to Apollo Hospital in Kolkata after complaining of chest pain,” news agency ANI said on Wednesday.
“Sourav didn’t have any major problem. This is the problem which most Indians experience at some point in time, which is a blockage in the coronary artery. Did he have heart damage? No. He had a blockage and he was getting some discomfort, but at the right time he landed in the right hospital and he had the right treatment,” Shetty had said.
