BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been discharged from the hospital on Thursday. “We come to hospital to save our lives. That has proven true. I thank the Woodlands Hospital and all the doctors for the excellent care. I am absolutely fine. Hope I would be ready to fly to soon,” Ganguly said while leaving the hospital.

Ganguly had an angioplasty on his right coronary artery after he suffered a heart attack on Saturday. He would be on oral medications and will be monitored by doctors and nurses at his home at the moment. As for other two coronary arteries that have blockages, medical procedures will be conducted at a later date.

Ganguly was scheduled to be discharged on Wednesday but he sought to stay back for one more day. Doctors said that the decision was that of Ganguly’s.

“He is clinically fit and is going home. We are all very happy,” said Dr Rupali Basu, the MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital.

In addition, Ganguly will be on oral medications and monitored on a daily basis at home.

However, dozens of fans gathered outside the hospital and outside Ganguly’s house after he was discharged.
