Sourav Ganguly, former India captain and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, has decided to stay in the hospital for another day. Ganguly was admitted to Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata on January 2 after complaining of discomfort in his chest. The former India skipper underwent an angioplasty on the same day and showed signs of improvement. Ganguly was expected to be discharged from the hospital but the 48-year-old has wished to stay in the hospital for another day.
The hospital staff told NDTV on Wednesday that it was Ganguly's own decision to stay back at the hospital for another day.
"Mr Ganguly is clinically fit. He slept well and had his meal. He wanted to stay in the hospital for one more day. So he will go home tomorrow. It is his personal decision," said Dr. Rupali Basu, MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital.
"He is fine and has no chest pain or any other complications. Our team of doctors monitored his health condition thoroughly this morning," a senior official at the hospital said.
"The unanimous decision was that an appropriate timely excellent treatment of primary PTCA with revascularisation of RCA was rendered during the acute heart attack stage," a medical bulletin released by the hospital read.
The bulletin also mentioned that doctors treating Ganguly will be keeping constant vigil on his health situation and appropriate measures will be taken at home once the former captain is discharged from the hospital.
