Former Indian skipper and current president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly recently suffered a mild cardiac arrest. On Wednesday, Ganguly will finally get discharged from the hospital.
It was on Sunday when Ganguly complained of chest pain and experienced dizziness while he was exercising in the gym. Thereafter, Ganguly was rushed to the hospital. Sourav Ganguly had undergone angioplasty in the evening of the same after the doctors found blockages in his three coronary arteries.
Now, Dr. Devi Shetty, the renowned cardiologist was involved in Ganguly’s case right from the beginning. Recently, the doctor paid a visit to Ganguly on Tuesday and did a thorough check-up of the former cricketer to ensure that there isn’t any damage to Ganguly’s body.
Talking about his health, Dr. Shetty claimed that Ganguly’s heart is as fit and strong as a 20-year-old. She also claimed that Ganguly was admitted to the hospital at the same time. He said:
“Sourav didn’t have any major problems. This is the problem which most Indians experience at some point in time, which is a blockage in the coronary artery. Did he have heart damage? No. He had a blockage and he was getting some discomfort, but at the right time he landed in the right hospital and he had the right treatment,”
“His heart is today as strong as it was when Sourav was 20-years-old. I want everyone to understand that he didn’t have a major cardiac event which has damaged his heart. He has a very, very strong heart,”
