The brain surgery underwent by Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan on Sunday has been declared successful. The actor underwent surgery to remove an old blood clot on the brain surface. He is in post operative care right now and has been advised three weeks of rest.
“The operation (brain surgery) has been successful. He is fully conscious,” said Dr VK Mishra, who was attending to the actor.
The doctor also revealed that the clot was due to the injury sustained by the actor during a stunt.
Hrithik Roshan sustained the head injury while performing a stunt for his movie ‘Bang Bang’. The actor hit his head the wrong way and he took pain killers to subside the immediate pain.
But Hrithik Roshan started experiencing intense headaches after a month from the injury and his family decided to get a MRI done.
Hrithik was diagnosed with chronic subdural hematoma and was admitted to the Hinduja Hospital on July 7 evening, and next day he was operated upon.
This condition is said to be very common among athletes and boxers, who sustain injuries to their heads.
Hrithik Roshan’s father Rakesh Roshan confirmed that the brain surgery was successful.
“The surgery is over and Hrithik is fine. He should be out of the hospital in the next 48 hours,” he said.
“Hrithik is out of danger and on way to complete recovery,” he concluded.
