Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan seems to be a strong man both mentally and physically. After the fourth time facing a surgery, Big B is doing fine now. He was operated for a Hernia surgery recently. The operation took place in the Seven Hills hospital in Marol on Saturday. The news reflected from the tweet of Amitabh’s son Abhishek Bachchan and was later confirmed by the star himself in the micro blogging site.
Amitabh faced intense and disturbing pain in the abdomen that compelled him to visit the hospital. After check up the doctors confirmed that the situation was not possible to be handled without operation. The hospital authority and the Bachchan family remained silent about Big B’s medical condition at the beginning. But a popular media gained information from a source that Amitabh was operated for Bilateral Inguinal Hernia. This is a condition that arises when when a soft tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. This causes pain in the abdominal region and in some cases bulging too.
Amitabh was led into the operation theatre around 9 am. He was to face the fourth surgery of his life. In spite of the doctor’s declaration of the operation being a minor one, it took nearly four hours to complete. Soon after the operation, his son Abhishek tweeted saying thanks to everybody for their wishes and prayers. He also added that the surgery went off well and that his Dad is in the resting room now. Later when speaking to the reporters he said that the doctors have put Amitabh Bachchan under a 24 hours observation. He confirmed that Big B was fine now and was walking inside the room.
By night, the angry young man was back on the micro blogging site himself. He posted a message starting with the word ‘Back’ denoting his return to the site. He thanked everybody for their prayers and said that these love and wishes never fail. He showed his indebtness and said the operation took almost 5 hours inside the operation theatre but he felt the wishes and concern of the ‘TwFmXt’ all throughout the time. He added that things took so long as surgeries had to be done two times on either sides. He said that it pains a lot but then nothing good in life is ever achieved without that.
The star was admitted to a suit which was on the fifth floor of the hospital and Big B had a few visitors. Bunty Walia, producer, was one of them. Walia was heard saying that when he asked Bachchan about how he was feeling, he said he was better.
The hospital authority was silent again about the discharge date of Amitabh Bachchan. According to some experts, Inguinal Hernia Surgeries are less complicated that promises fast recoveries. A doctor told that patients who were operated using laparoscopy leave the hospital earlier. Bachchan’s doctors decided to operate him without Laparoscopy. They said that this hernia is a result of weakness or tear in the wall of lower abdomen or groin and they felt in his case this can be caused by the deadly intestinal injury he received while shooting for the film Coolie in 1982.
