The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president and former Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly has been hospitalized again after he complained of a chest discomfort days after undergoing an angioplasty. Ganguly visited Apollo Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday.
Ganguly will undergo stenting on Thursday, as informed by Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata. The doctors have informed that his condition is stable.
“He had chest discomfort today and he is taken to Apollo today. Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Saroj Mondal are attending. Dr Aftab Khan will do the stenting tomorrow in presence of Dr Devi Shetty,” Woodlands Hospital informed.
“Sourav Ganguly has come for a checkup of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalization & his vital parameters are stable,” ANI quoted Apollo Hospital as saying.
Ganguly was admitted to the Woodlands hospital earlier this month after experiencing chest pain and dizziness. He was diagnosed with three blockages in the artery, following which he underwent angioplasty. He was discharged after five days.
“I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon,” Ganguly said later.
Doctors have said that the BCCI president will be monitored regularly for even after being discharged.
