Dr. Devi Shetty, a renowned cardiologist, said on Tuesday that BCCI’s President Sourav Ganguly’s heart was as strong as when the former Indian captain was 20 years old.
Dr. Shetty met a medical team of nine doctors attending Ganguly at Woodlands Hospital, and on Tuesday the hospital decided to take further action. Ganguly will be discharged on Wednesday and will be monitored at home every day after that, said Rupali Basu MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital. The 48-year-old Ganguly will be ready for the next procedure or course of medical intervention in about 2-3 weeks.
“Sourav didn’t have a big problem. This is a problem most Indians experience at some point, a blockage of the coronary artery. Did you have any heart damage? no. It was clogged and felt some discomfort, but arrived at the right hospital in a timely manner and got the right treatment.
