Big B in pain- Too busy for surgery
Mega star Amitabh Bachchan is suffering from multiple hernias in his lower abdomen which has resulted in swelling of that area and is causing him imense pain whenever he exerts himself.
Doctors have advised him to undergo a surgery, but he has been avoiding it due to his busy schedule.
Amitabh has already undergone three surgeries ever since he met with an accident on the sets of ‘Coolie’ in 1982.
“… A stomach surgery, indeed two in quick succession always have the possibility of hernia developing. And that is what is of concern now. There are now two urgent hernia in the lower abdomen which have swelled up dangerously and cause me problems,”
Big B revealed on his blog.
“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.So the doctors 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,” he wrote.
Now there is a third hernia developing, he writes.
“And now after my third surgery of the stomach a few years back, when I was diagnosed for diverticulitis, there is another hernia that is developing. Of that later, say doctors. Because of the several times that the stomach has been opened up, there are lesions, and they at times stick and cause problems,” posted the 67-year-old who is also “asthmatic”.
