Amitabh Bachchan recovering at home following abdominal surgery
Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan is back home and recovering following surgery to investigate an abdominal complaint. The actor and presenter, who’s appeared in over 180 movies, has endured a two week stay in a Mumbai hospital after undergoing an operation on February 11th.
The legendary actor appears to be on the road to recovery and was even feeling well enough to update both his blog and Twitter account, thanking fans for their blessings and prayers which the Bollywood star credits with aiding his recovery.
In his personal blog, the 69-year-old star revealed it was, “A joy to be back in familiar surroundings”, obviously happy and relieved to be back home again. However the actor was sharp as ever in the posting, pointing the finger at a group of journalists who had blocked his car, hampering his journey home from hospital this week.
While Amitabh Bachchan seemed in good spirits, he added that he was still in pain following his surgery writing that, “discomfort and soreness persists”. It’s been suggested that the actor may have undergone a second operation in the last two weeks, which would explain the star’s extended stay in hospital and his current discomfort.
Bachchan was admitted to hospital earlier this month after suffering abdominal pain. The TV Gameshow host has experienced long-running health problems linked to his stomach after rupturing his spleen during a movie shoot in the 80’s.
