Mumbai, Apr 11 (IBNS) Two months after his abdominal surgery, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan underwent a CT (Computed Tomography) scan on Tuesday triggering a health scare among his fans.
However, he was quick to clarify that it was only a routine checkup.
"Dearest tv media and vans outside my home, please do not stress and work so hard. Its nothing, just another visit to my doctor !!" Bachchan tweeted.
On Apr 9 night, Big B posted on micro-blogging site Twitter: "Need to turn in early .. they prescribe some liquids to be taken before the CT Scan."
Bachchan had complained of 'excruciating pain' on Monday.
"So last night just after I had finished with the Blog, I rose from my desk to get to bed, but excruciating pain, stopped me in my tracks and I found it difficult to walk to stand to sit to lie down. Quite horrendous ! This was not there post operation even … so what really is the reason for it two months down the line ? I have no answer," he blogged.
"But tomorrow there should be one as I prepare for a CT Scan, after devouring a large bottle or bottles of that yellow fluid, that shall line the internal organs so the scan can pick up any region that could be infected or being the cause for the pain."
Bachchan was discharged from Mumbai's Seven Hills Hospital post his surgery on February 23.
The veteran actor underwent a successful surgery on February 11.
He was suffering from acute pain after surgery and that delayed his release from the hospital.
Earlier, in another of his blog posts he called all his health problems ‘a legacy of the past, in particular, the accident of 1982 during 'Coolie’, adding that the ‘subsequent disturbances have all and shall emanate from it’.
He was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver in 2002 and later in 2005 he was treated for perforated diverticula-holes in the wall of the intestine.
And again in 2008, the actor suffered problems in stomach due to incisional hernia.
