Earlier, in a statement, the hospital authoroties said, “He is being treated by our team of experts and is making steady recovery.”
The authorities also said that no surgery or intervention was being planned for now and that Sidhu was medically stable.
51-year-old Sidhu was admitted to the hospital with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a life-threatening disease if not cured in time.
DVT is caused by a blood clot in a deep vein which hinders the normal blood flow. The symptoms may include swelling, pain, and tenderness, often in the legs.
