In a good news, BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been discharged from Kolkata's Woodlands hospital, five days after undergoing an angioplasty. The 48-year-old was admitted in the hospital after he complained of a chest pain.

Ganguly has thanked the doctors, saying, "I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine, hopefully I will be ready to fly soon."

"Firstly, I thank everyone for their well wishes. Especially the doctors at the Woodlands Hospital. I thank them for taking care of me. They say we come to hospital to get our lives back and it's really has been that," he added.

The former India opener had been admitted to Woodlands hospital in Kolkata after complaining of a heart issue on Saturday morning.

Sourav Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage. Ganguly had also tested negative for Covid-19 on Sunday.
A 9-member medical team was formed on Monday who then decided that Ganguly doesn't need any further angioplasty for the remaining blockages in his coronary arteries.

Dr Rupali Basu MD & CEO Woodlands Hospital, had earlier told India Today that Ganguly will be able to resume his normal life in another 3-4 weeks once the remaining two blocked arteries are revascularised.

"I don't think we are considering surgery at the moment because of his young age and the advancement of angioplasty.

"But we are taking expert opinions from the best cardiologists in the country and in the world and then we will have to take a call about what to do with the 2 blocked arteries and once that is done, another 3-4 weeks of resting and he should be back to his active life and that's what we want for Dada to be back to his active life," Dr. Basu had said.
