Amitabh Bachchan hospitalized for surgery

Amitabh Bachchan was admitted at the Seven Hills Hospital in Mumbai for an abdominal surgery this morning. A fervent social networker, Amitabh Bachchan has kept his fans updated on his health condition through his posts on Twitter and his blog. Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog,, "There were some medical procedures today as well, for, and this is being disclosed to the Ef (extended family on the internet) at this point of time, a surgery that I shall be undergoing on the 11th morning. I do not wish to talk much on my medical condition, but trust and faith in my FmXt allows me to do so. The surgery they say is not too complicated, but then all doctors say the same as you end up on the operating table, and before long the details and the subsequent anxieties begin to rise."

He added: "There has been a dosage of injections intravenous that began to day and shall continue for a few days... a pain in the abdomen has to be investigated tomorrow under a CT Scan and then and only then shall the ok for the surgery be given … so the next few weeks shall be full of nothing else but the hospital and medical bulletins .. boring it may be but it shall be as informative as possible."

It all began way back in 1982 when Big B's started complaining and battling abdominal ailments. He was seriously injured while shooting for Coolie. It was a fight scene that led to all this. In 2005 he underwent a bowel surgery.

"My stomach which has already been the bed of many complicated battles in the past, shall have to entertain this as well. Its a war zone, my body, and one which has been through a great deal and still does. I sometimes lament the fact that I do not have the benefit of a complete and ailment free body structure, and I wonder how wonderful it would be to be normal again. But this was my fate and I shall accept it with a smile," Amitabh Bachchan wrote.

Big B has been advised by his doc to refrain from late-night appearances.

"The doc who looks after me was furious at my late night appearances … but what does one d.. it is this time of the night or the day when there is freedom and solitude to assuage what I must convey or not. But I do understand his concern and shall abide by it.." he wrote.

Shah Rukh Khan has posted his wishes for Amitabh Bachchan on Twitter. "@SrBachchan sir wish u the best.jaldi hi theek thaak hokar aap aa prayers and love to u sir. Nasrun minal lahe wah fatahun kareeb."

To update Big B’s fans and all well wishers, Abhishek recently tweeted, "Thank you all for your wishes and prayers. The surgery went off well and dad is now in the room resting."
