Amitabh Bachchan Likely to Extend Hospital Stay


His legions of fans continue to pray that all is well with megastar Amitabh Bachchan after his latest abdominal surgery, and it seemed their prayers were not left for naught. In fact Big B himself was tweeting that he is recuperating well.

So, how come Amitabh might be required to spend a few more days at the hospital, before he gets to go back home?

“Looks like a few more days… before they set me free… but recovery at home will be another few months,” Bachchan continued to tweet.

“Getting independent gradually…a careful shower avoiding the cuts and needles and ‘kites’..pretty dexterous exercise,” he added.

It will be recalled that Bachchan was operated on February 11 at the Seven Hills hospital and was due to be discharged soon. However, after his surgery, the actor tweeted that he was in acute pain and that his hospital stay was extended.

The iconic actor refused to reveal more about his condition saying in the US there is a law allowing patients not to disclose their condition – even to their families.

But, this is what is known so far, the 69-year-old actor has been battling a string of stomach ailments since his near fatal injury while filming a fight scene in the 1982 movie ‘Coolie’, where he remained in the hospital for months. Since then he has been frequently admitted to the hospital for stomach-related ailments.

Hopefully, all will be well for the Big B.
