As per an input in a report in India Today, the 48-year-old is under close supervision by the doctors at the hospital. Meanwhile, the doctors have confirmed that Ganguly's situation is not alarming and a call will be taken on Thursday if the former cricketer will require a second stent.
Earlier this month, the former cricketer was admitted at Kolkata's Woodlands Hospital after he suffered a mild heart attack, following which he underwent an angioplasty. The BCCI President was then diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries. A stent was also inserted in one to remove the blockage. He was later discharged from the hospital on January 7.
Speaking to reporters outside the hospital then, Ganguly confirmed that he had recovered completely and also expressed his gratitude towards the medical staff. "I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine," says BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had said.
