Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, recuperating in SevenHills Hospital here after undergoing two abdominal surgeries, is likely to remain in hospital for some more time.
The 69-year-old actor was supposed to be discharged from hospital Monday, however, Amitabh revealed on his Twitter page that his release was delayed after he developed acute pain in the area where he had undergone surgery.
"NOT SUCH AN EXCITING DAY! Acute pain throughout, but bearing up... still in hospital and delay now in release," he tweeted Monday.
He also wrote a detailed account of his condition on his blog.
"The morning has been nightmarish. There has been incredible pain in the region of the surgery, and the spasms so acute that they brought me to the level of a scream … which is saying a lot, for, my resistance to pain has been quite satisfactory in the past," Amitabh wrote on his blog bigb.bigadda.com Monday night.
"But the doctors were immediately summoned and after change in the dressings and pain killers, there seems to be now some semblance of relief. Not entirely, but enough," he added.
The actor has been suffering from abdominal problems stemming from the injury he suffered during shooting of "Coolie" in 1982.
It was being said that Amitabh will be discharged Tuesday but if sources are to be believed it is extremely unlikely that he would be out.
Meanwhile, Bollywood celebrities like Ram Gopal Varma, Ramesh Taurani, Apoorva Lakhia, Sanjay Dutt and Manyata Dutt, visited the megastar in the hospital to know about his well being.
