Big B is recovering; Delay in discharge due to acute pain

After having abdominal surgery last week, Big B is recuperating in Seven Hills Hospital, Mumbai.

Amitabh Bachchan, who suffered acute pain after abdominal surgeries, said early Wednesday that he is now fine. But there is no word when he can leave the hospital for home.

"A day that brings you to the brink of wellness and pushes you back into the well of uneasy health... the body shall dictate always! Cure can be distasteful till it begins to work .. till that happens, your faith in it diminishes by the minute...then suddenly AIW: All Izzz Well .. !!" the megastar wrote on microblogging site Twitter.

The actor was supposed to be discharged from the hospital on Monday, but after he complained of pain, he has been advised to stay back for a few more days.

Amitabh's family and doctors are still not revealing when he will be discharged. However, Big B had a special visitor yesterday. Daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dropped by the hospital with her 3-month-old daughter, still known as "Beti B".

Big B's abdominal problems stem from an injury he suffered during the shooting of "Coolie" in 1982, an incident that almost cost his life.
