Amitabh Bachchan is still under observation
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is still under observation, but out of danger, says hospital sources. The senior Bollywood actor had developed pain post the first surgery and was to undergo a second surgery today.

Talking about the health of Amitabh Bachchan, the hospital sources confirmed that he is not critical. "He was supposed to undergo second surgery as he had developed pain post the first surgery. However, there is no hassle as such...he is not critical but under observation," the PTI quotes hospital sources as saying.

Last night, Amitabh Bachchan had revealed that he will undergo a second surgery. On twitter Big B wrote, "Some more tests... more unpronounceable medication... and... another visit to the OT... operation theatre! Going to be a long stay. I refrain from giving greater details of my condition...in the West patient has the right to not disclose - even to family!!"

On his blog, Amitabh Bachchan also wrote, "The night started off with great apprehensions, what with the temperature of the fever going up - always a dangerous signal. But the mercury fell during the night...by the morning there was a freshness and hope of repair. Soon after wards though, the additional pain that has developed in the abdomen, apart from the surgical, kept doctors busy and going into a huddle."

The actor continued, "Heavy dosages of even more antibiotics were pumped in, and to facilitate this operation they had to wheel me in to the OT again to put a 'central line', through an incision on the neck...Procedure over, tubes and tapes being attached." He added, "Family anxious to know if all went well... Abhishek assures them, and tucked into bed, pillows all around, tired and tired, shut eyes."

Bachchan further wrote, “There are more doctors now being called in for consultation, for second opinion...they do not differ in the analysis of the earlier doctors... so treatment remains, pain remains." On February 11, the actor underwent an abdominal surgery at Seven Hills hospital in Andheri in suburban Mumbai.
