Board of Control for Cricket in India president and former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly, who underwent angioplasty, wants to stay in the hospital for one more day and will be discharged from the facility on Thursday
The 48-year-old was supposed to be discharged from the hospital on Wednesday but expressed his desire to stay there for one more day, an official of the hospital said .
“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,” Woodlands Hospital MD and CEO Dr Rupali Basu told reporters.
Hospital sources said the necessary formalities to discharge Ganguly were completed, and he and his family members were briefed about the medicine which he needs to take after returning home.
“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 of the facility said.
Meanwhile, many people were seen standing outside the hospital to cheer him up. Sources close to the cricket icon said Ganguly wanted to avoid the huge number of his fans gathered outside the hospital and his residence at Behala.
Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday last week, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage.
