Amitabh Bachchan to undergo surgery
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan hasn't been in good health for a long time now. His lower abdomen has swollen due to hernia. After bearing the pain for many years, he has decided to undergo surgery. This will be his fourth surgery. He was earlier operated thrice ever since he met with an accident while shooting for Coolie in 1982.

“There are now two urgent hernia in the lower abdomen which have swelled up dangerously and cause me problems. Sharp pains when I stand for too long, or walk too much. During dance and action scenes there is huge pain and I counter that with a hernia belt, which is temporary and not really a cure," Amitabh wrote on his blog.

Big B revealed that he has finally decided to undergo surgery. “So the docs have been after me for a surgery, well two actually on either side of the abdomen, and I have been avoiding it because of my busy schedule, but I shall have to take care of it now. And now after my third surgery of the stomach a few years back when I was diagnosed for diverticulitus, there is another hernia that is developing. Of that later say docs. Because of the several times that the stomach has been opened up there are lesions and they at times stick and cause problems," he added.

Amitabh said that it was not easy doing action sequences having undergone three surgeries. He revealed that the stoop in his left shoulder is due to one of the surgeries and not style. He went on to say that his left arm has become longer than the right, affecting his clothing.

Well, the 67-year-old actor should leave everything behind and take care of his health. We at Oneindia wish him good health!
