Will be home in few days, full recovery to take months: Big B
"Looks like a few more days then before they set me free... but recovery at home will be another few months," Big B, who was expected to be discharged from the hospital by Wednesday, posted on his Twitter page.
He was admitted to the Seven Hills Hospital Feb 11. He underwent two abdominal surgeries, following which he complained of acute pain. Doctors decided to keep him under observation, and his condition seems to be improving now.
His post-surgery pain has reduced and doctors, satisfied with his progress, have allowed him to take a bath and have a better intake of food.
"Getting independent gradually... a careful shower, avoiding the cuts and needles and 'kites'... pretty dexterous exercise," wrote Amitabh, referring to the medical tubes as "kites".
Confined to the hospital bed for 10 days, Amitabh is glad he is being allowed to be a bit mobile now.
"Wonderful to see all your faculties coming back in use... those that lose them permanently, however do they manage," he added.
Big B's health condition stems from his near-fatal accident on the sets of 'Coolie' in 1982.
On the big screen, the 69-year-old was last seen in Prakash Jha's 'Aarakshan' in 2011. But he was active on the small screen; where he hosted the grand fifth season of the reality show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.
