Doctors see progress in Amitabh's health
Actor Amitabh Bachchan has been recuperating at the Seven Hills Hospital in Juhu following his abdominal surgery on February 11. Now, the Bollywood megastar has shown signs of improvement and the doctors are satisfied with the progress in his health. He is likely to get discharged from the hospital today.

On his blog, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, "The meetings of the morning with the team of doctors.. the most trying for the patient. As you await results of their assessment, you wonder what new discovery they may have found that would immerse you in further treatment. But happy to note that they seemed satisfied with the progress and after a few closed door discussions, came back with a few points that would bring relief to any sufferer."

Earlier last week, Bachchan had complained of acute abdominal pain and tweeted that he may have to undergo a second operation and his stay at the hospital was extended. But later it was decided by doctors that the surgery was not required as the 69-year-old actor was getting better. Also, the doctors decided to keep him away from any further dressings.

"Most of the repair is done by the body itself ... marvellous piece of machinery..which is why you respect its maker so much. A better day... dressings removed, more normal food intake, lesser 'kites' and greater visitors," he tweeted. As Big B is on his way to recovery, there are chances that he might get discharged soon, hospital sources had said.
