Big B still in pain, likely to undergo another surgery

All is not well with the megastar Amitabh Bachchan. After two abdominal surgeries, his condition deteriorate, two days back, he tweeted that he is in acute pain. The latest update about his health is that his pain still persists and doctors came to the conclusion that he might have to undergo another surgery.

Big B is kept under observation at Mumbai Sevenhills hospital. Doctors are postponing his discharge date as he is not fully recovered. Amitabh Bachchan tweeted yesterday that fresh medial issue has come up which needs to be treated.

"The night started off with great apprehensions, what with the temperature of the fever going up - always a dangerous signal. But the mercury fell during the night, or in today`s terminology the digital reading in these modern contraptions, showed improvement and by the morning there was a freshness and hope of repair," he posted late Thursday night.

"Soon afterwards though, the additional pain that has developed in the abdomen, apart from the surgical, kept doctors busy and going into a huddle. Whenever they do that, I always surmise there is something more than normal in the patient. Heavy dosages of even more antibiotics were pumped in, and to facilitate this operation they had to wheel me into the OT again to put a `central line`, through an incision on the neck. There are more doctors now being called in for consultation, for second opinion... hmmm... a lapse of some time, friends drop by inquiring after and then the doctors again... they do not differ in the analysis of the earlier doctors... so treatment remains, pain remains and I remain with you - my sincerest of wellwishers," Big B added.

Without divulging any further details of his health condition, he tweeted,"I refrain from giving greater details of my condition... in the west patient has the right to not disclose - even to family!! I realise anxious members of EF and TwFmXt need to know...whenever there is some important procedure, will inform," Big B tweeted Thursday.

Even family members, hospital authorities refrained from speaking anything about his health.

Our good wishes are with Mr. Bachchan!
